Logan • Through two seasons at Utah State, seven carries and 24 yards defining his career as an Aggie, Joe Hill finally seems ready to make an impact for coach Gary Andersen.
He won't start as a redshirt sophomore. That distinction goes to Kerwynn Williams, another who has patiently waited his turn for a bigger role. However, Andersen is confident that Hill will be his No. 2 running back when the season starts in three weeks against Southern Utah.
Pass protection used to be a big issue. It isn't anymore. His lack of experience led to a redshirt year in 2010. But Hill's long been on the minds of his offensive coaches, as his speed and running ability have impressed over time, even when he was on the scout team.
