Gordon Hill Interview: Sacred Heart DB

image

imageSacred Heart Pioneers senior DB Gordon Hill joined Chris Shanafelt on The C.S. Podcast on August 27, 2014 for an interview to talk about his experience at SHU, the 2014 season which kicked off last Saturday as they went up against Marist (ended up getting the 28-7 victory) and much more. Last season, Gordon was named to the All-NEC first team as he tallied 72 tackles, 13 QB hits, 3 sacks, 12 pass deflections, 2 interceptions, & 3 touchdowns. Hill helped lead his team to victory in the NEC Championship game. The Sacred Heart Pioneers are a team that is loaded with talent. They have 17 returning starters from last season including a nice, young QB in R.J. Noel, arguably the best small-school RB in Keshaudas Spence (last week against Marist, Spence actually broke the SHU all-time rushing record previously held by Ed Pricolo with 3,052 yards), A senior Wide-Receiver in Tyler Dube who has become Noel’s go-to guy, a solid LB Connor Candito, and of course, Gordon Hill who has proven to be a playmaker. This interview was recorded a few days before their 1st game of the season and against Marist, Hill was able to have a huge impact on the game as he racked up 5 tackles and had the play-of-the-game as he picked Marist’s QB Achziger on the first play of the second half and returned it 40 yards for a touchdown. One thing that Hill pointed out a few times in the interview is his versatility. Although he’s listed as a safety, at 6-0, 220lbs and with his high football IQ, Hill is capable of playing S, CB, and OLB if needed. We still have a long way to go until the 2015 NFL Draft but scouts have been in-and-out of Sacred Heart University and Gordon Hill is certainly a name that you’ll want to be on the look-out for.
