TCU football: Kenny Hill wins starting QB job

The TCU football program has announced its starting quarterback.

On Thursday, the Horned Frogs announced Texas A&M transfer Kenny Hill would roll out for the season-opener against on  Sept. 3 against South Dakota State.

Hill edged out sophomore Foster Sawyer to earn the starting gig.

The Star-Telegram was first to report the news.

Before transferring from College Station, Hill threw for  2,649 yards and 23 touchdowns. The 6-foot-1, 205-pound junior had an impressive 66.7 percent completion percentage.

Hill, a former four-star recruit, was honored as Gatorade Player of the Year coming out of high school.

If he can live up to the high expectations he had coming to the collegiate level and continues to improve on his freshman campaign at Texas A&M, the Horned Frogs should be able to effectively replace Trevone Boykin and build for the future.
