Kevin Hill 2020 MLL Draft Prospect
April 29, 2020 - Major League Lacrosse (MLL) News Release
Boston, MA - Kevin Hill spent what was supposed to be his senior season on the sidelines due to injury, but in that 2019 season his leadership position for the Nittany Lions grew. He was an active sideline participant, closely watching and mentoring players - a testament to his field sense and game IQ. His value both on and off the field was apparent to Penn State Head Coach Jeff Tambroni, so he was asked to redshirt and return in the 2020 season. Hill, of course, was not able to give MLL teams a full season of game tape to review in 2020, but with his significant contributions on the field from 2016 to 2018, and the soft-skills he has developed over the last 5 years, it is expected Hill will be a clear selection in the 2020 MLL Collegiate Draft Presented by Cascade.
Follow draft results on MLL's social media platforms on May 4 at 7:30pm EST to find out which MLL team will add Penn State's Kevin Hill to their 2020 roster.
