Tyreek Hill Player Overview

Tyreek Hill is 26 years old in 2020. Born in Lauderhill, Florida, but grew up in Pearson, Georgia. In high school, he was an elite track star, running in both the 100-meter and 200-meter. He came within 100th of a second from beating the all-time 200-meter record. In 2012, Hill made the high school athlete of the year.

He also ran a 4.25 40-yard dash at a Nike Sparq camp. Hill represented the United States in the World Junior Championships in Barcelona in 2012, winning a bronze medal in the 200 m, and a gold in the 4 x 100 m relay.

Hill started his college career at Garden City Community College, where he ran track and played football, serving as both WR and RB. He was a highly sought-after JUCO recruit when he transferred to Oklahoma State University.

He was predominantly used as a running back and punt return specialist. Unfortunately, OSU dismissed Hill from their program after he was arrested for domestic violence, for reportedly choking and hitting his girlfriend.

Hill then transferred to the University of West Alabama, where he was utilized as a running back, wide receiver, punt returner and kick returner. Hill did not get an invite to the NFL Combine and projected to be an Undrafted Free Agent due to his history of domestic violence. Measuring at 5' 8 ?", and weighing 185 pounds, while running a 4.29-second 40-yard dash, Hill was drafted by the Kansas City Chiefs in the fifth round. The Chiefs took heat for selecting Hill due to his history of domestic violence.

Hill's rookie season in 2016, he finished with 61 receptions for 593 yards and 6 touchdowns, rushing the ball 24 times for 267 yards and 3 touchdowns. He also returned 14 kicks and 39 punts, adding another three scores, appearing in 16 games. Hill was Mr. Do-It-All.

In 2017 Hill caught 75 passes on 105 targets for 1,183 yards and 7 touchdowns. He was still active on punts but was no longer returning kickoffs…
