(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The most decorated running back in Missouri Western history will represent the Griffons one more time on Saturday.
Micheal Hill will play in the Raycom College Football All-Star Classic in Montgomery, Ala.
Hill did not find out that he would be playing in it until one week before the game. He flew to Alabama the next day to meet up with his team.
The teams playing in the all-star game will be coached by former NFL head coaches Jim Bates and Dan Reeves.
Hill will join the team coached by Reeves, the former coach of the Denver Broncos, New York Giants and Atlanta Falcons. He made four trips to the Super Bowl during his career, three with the Broncos and one with the Falcons.
