Nike's engineering team is using BYU redshirt senior QB Taysom Hill as a case study for a new shoe designed to help prevent re-aggravations of prior foot injuries.
Hill's career has been riddled with injuries. A broken leg sidelined him in 2014 and he managed just over a half of football in the 2015 season-opener against Nebraska before suffering a season-ending Lisfranc foot injury. In an effort to avoid a relapse, Hill explained that "[Nike is] building a shoe that gives me more support through the arch and I’ll include my orthotics as an insole on top of that." "I'm sort of the guinea pig [for the research and experimentation]," said the 6-foot-2, 232-pounder. He and Tanner Mangum (who performed admirably after Hill went down last season) are battling it out to start for the Cougars in 2016. Jul 2 - 6:02 PM
