TCU redshirt senior QB Kenny Hill completed 3-of-9 passes for 15 yards and two interceptions in the team's spring game.
Oh dear. This was a poor showing for Hill, but more than that, it was simply a dirge-like performance for the TCU offense on the whole. They failed to score on 15-of-16 possessions. Horned Frogs HC Gary Patterson addressed both of Hill's interceptions, saying, "One was a good play (by the defense). The other one, he just threw it to us. We’ve got to be better than that." Hill led the Big 12 in interceptions with 13 this past season and decision-making remains an issue in his game, but he will be the likely starter come the open of the 2017 season unless the wheels completely fall off in August.

San Diego-based QB coach George Whitfield Jr. says TCU redshirt senior QB Kenny Hill "definitely ... [is] going to have every chance to play on Sunday."

Hill has spent his past three spring breaks working with Whitfield. The Horned Frog signal-caller is coming off a very strange season indeed. He had the third-best passing season in TCU history, but then of course he also led the Big 12 in interceptions. Hill accounted for 27 total touchdowns, but he only went 6-6 as a starter. Of course, Hill led the country with 38 dropped passes. Whitfield indicated that Hill has mostly focused on his footwork and weight transition to improve his accuracy. "None of these guys comes out here without some type of goal. His was consistency," Whitfield said. "He can make any type of throw. He’s certainly not limited in any capacity. But can you do it on call? Can you do it when it’s a known passing situation on the road? Can you do it under siege?"

TCU HC Gary Patterson said, "I think [redshirt senior QB Kenny Hilly] lost a little bit of confidence at the end of last year, and I don’t think all of it was his fault."

"I was too tough on him, to be honest. But you’ve got to look like it doesn’t matter to you that you threw a pick. You can’t let the rest of the offense know that it gets to you," Patterson said. It did not help that TCU's wideouts proved largely incapable of hauling in Trill's passes. Per Pro Football Focus, Hill was plagued by 38 drops, most in the country. Patterson alluded to these issues, too, saying, "we have to have a wide receiver step up" and making an allusion to Horned Frog greats of yore. "Trevone Boykin was a good player. But he was also a good player because of Kolby Listenbee and Josh Doctson," Patterson said. Hill accounted for 27 total touchdowns last season and could improve on that number during the coming campaign if he can shore up some of turnover tendencies (he led the Big 12 with 13 interceptions in 2016).

TCU QB Kenny Hill led the country with 38 dropped passes in 2016, according to Pro Football Focus.

Hill was criticized for an inconsistent first season in Fort Worth, but he wasn't done many favors by his inexperienced receiving corps. "We threw too many interceptions," TCU HC Gary Patterson said last week. "We all know that. And we were last in the NCAA in drops. So if we want to get better, we’ve got to do a better job of catching it and we’ve got to do a better job of throwing it to us. There’s no secret of the things we’ve got to get better at." Hill finished with 3,208 passing yards on a 61.1 completion percentage but led the Big 12 in interceptions with 13 and was 6-6 as a starter. Utah's Troy Williams, Idaho's Matt Linehan, Memphis' Riley Ferguson and Louisville's Lamar Jackson were the four other quarterbacks who had 33 or more dropped passes last year.
Feb 8 - 5:38 PM

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill completed 18 of 27 for 146 yards and two touchdowns as well as 72 rushing yards and a touchdown on the ground in the school's 31-23 loss to Georgia.

Hill flashed the same promise early in this contest that he did with Texas A&M, but the Horned Frogs fizzled out. Georgia was able to use a spy in the second half and force TCU in unfavorable situations with tackles for loss. Hill should be TCU's starting quarterback next year.

TCU HC Gary Patterson said that he expects redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill (foot) to start against Georgia in the Liberty Bowl on Friday.

Hill continues to rehab a foot injury initially sustained versus Kansas State in the regular-season finale. "I don't think he's 100%," Patterson said, "but he's close." Hill has been incredibly up-and-down throughout the current campaign. Through 12 games, he has thrown for 3,062 yards (60.8% completions) with a 15/13 TD/INT ratio while rushing for 537 yards and nine additional scores.

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill (foot) has returned to practice.

Hill injured his foot in a loss to Kansas State in TCU's final game of the 2016 campaign. Back in action now, with HC Gary Patterson saying, "He missed about the first half of [bowl] practices, and he’s been back a little bit. We’ll find out. He’s been running around." Foster Sawyer would draw the Liberty Bowl start against Georgia if Hill is not healthy enough to give that one a go on December 30.

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill was 5-of-11 passing for 52 yards in Saturday's loss to Kansas State.

He also rushed for 50 yards on seven carries. Hill started this game on the sidelines, but Gary Patterson changed his tune after watching starter Foster Sawyer go 12-of-25 for 86 yards and an interception. And so Hill was inserted despite an ankle injury to predictable results. We'd guess Hill will close out the year as starter in the bowl game.

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill went 15-for-29 for 150 yards and an interception in a 31-9 blowout win over TCU on Friday.

Hill was once again ineffective through the air, but he redeemed himself in exploiting Texas' issues against the run. Hill scrambled around for 78 yards and ran for two touchdowns on a 6.0 ypc average. The Horned Frogs (6-5, 4-4 Big 12) became bowl eligible with the victory. They host Kansas State in the regular season finale next week.

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill will start against Texas on Friday.

Foster Sawyer has come on to replace Hill in two of TCU's last three games, most recently in Saturday's 31-6 loss to Oklahoma State. In reference to that one, Horned Frogs HC Gary Patterson said that "[t]he game was a little bit out of hand," hence Sawyer's entrance into the proceedings. For his part, Hill has thrown for 2,860 yards (61.9% completions) with a 15/12 TD/INT ratio while rushing for 409 yards and seven additional touchdowns. TCU (5-5) has two games remaining on their schedule and will need one victory against either Texas or Kansas State if they are to achieve bowl eligibility.

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill threw for 244 yards and ran for 85 more in a 62-22 upset victory over 17th-ranked Baylor on Saturday.

Perhaps more importantly, the 6-foot-1, 215-pounder didn't turn the ball over once. Hill hit Taj Williams for 37-yard touchdown on TCU's second play, and the Horned Frogs kept running from there, the first of 31 consecutive points. TCU HC Gary Patterson benched Hill for Foster Sawyer last week, but we'd guess that Hill bought himself some leash today. TCU (5-4, 3-3) has a bye before hosting Oklahoma State on Nov. 19.

TCU started redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill Saturday against Baylor.

He'll be on a short leash. Redshirt sophomore QB Foster Sawyer replaced a benched Hill last week.
Sat, Nov 5, 2016 04:22:00 PM

TCU HC Gary Patterson said that both redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill and redshirt sophomore QB Foster Sawyer could play against Baylor on Saturday.

On Monday, Patterson said that Hill would "probably" be the starter, but he clearly is not set on the 6-foot-1, 205-pound Aggie transfer. Trill was benched in Saturday's loss to Texas Tech after throwing for 160 yards and a pick, with Sawyer taking over to hit on 6-of-17 passes for 86 yards and a score. On the fantasy front, neither quarterback makes for a starting option, regardless of who Patterson eventually decides to toss out to the lions.

TCU HC Gary Patterson said that redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill will "probably" be the starter against Baylor on Saturday.

Hill was benched due to ineffectiveness in this weekend's low-scoring (!) double-overtime loss to Texas Tech. He managed just 16-of-29 passing for 160 yards and an interception in that contest, failing to throw for a touchdown for the first time in eight games. Foster Sawyer entered in his place in the fourth quarter and proceeded to complete 6-of-17 passes for 86 yards and a touchdown. Even if Hill holds onto the starting job, we would steer clear for fantasy purposes. In his last three games, the 6-foot-1, 205-pounder has thrown for a combined 514 yards with a 2/5 TD/INT ratio.

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill was benched in the fourth quarter of Saturday's 27-24 double-overtime loss to Texas Tech.

How easy was it for one of the nation's worst defenses to get into Hill's head? Well, hear it from them. Said Red Raider Malik Jenkins: "We just knew we had to get in Kenny Hill's face a lot and attack, attack, attack." Hill went 16-for-29 for 160 yards with one interception and 35 rushing yards prior to getting yanked for Foster Sawyer. We'll update you on the Frogs' quarterback intentions next week, but after Sawyer played well in Hill's place, you'd have to expect him to draw the start. The Horned Frogs (4-4, 2-3 Big 12) have a road trip to Baylor on deck.
