In honor of the IFL's 10th Anniversary season, the IFL is counting down the top ten IFL players of all-time. Coming in at #6 is IFL Hall of Fame DB/KR B.J Hill.
An All-Conference performer at Ball State University, Hill is one of the most decorated players in IFL history. A versatile athlete, Hill contributed in all three phases of the game, however, he truly made his mark as a defensive back and in the return game.
Hill spent his entire four-year IFL career with the Green Bay Blizzard. During that time, he was named to five All-IFL Teams. During the 2012 season he was the first player in IFL history to earn two spots on the All-League team in the same year (at the defensive back and kick returner positions). Hill finished his career holding three different IFL return records; career kick return yards (3,412), kick return TDs (13), and season kick return average (23.2 during the 2012 season). In total he registered 253 tackles and 20 INTs. And finally, Hill is a two-time IFL Special Teams Player of the Year (2011, 2013).
Hill was inducted into the IFL Hall of Fame in 2015. Over the 2017 offseason Hill came out of retirement and will play for the Green Bay Blizzard in 2018.
The countdown will culminate with the announcement of the top IFL player of all-time on February 23, the start of the 2018 IFL season.
