He threw the ball 60 feet, kicked it 52 feet and punted it 52 feet to secure his second victory at the sectional competition in the last two years.

In September, Hill scored 135.9 points to claim first place in the 6 and 7 year-old division of the Greenville Parks and Recreation Department’s Punt, Pass & Kick competition.
He scored more than 70 points higher than his closest competition.
Hill punted the ball 40 feet, 4 inches; kicked it 46 feet, 3 inches; and threw the ball 49 feet, 2 inches to earn the win.
