Top Mississippi College Football Player Is a Bulldog, Again

STARKVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) — For the second straight season and eighth time overall a Mississippi State Bulldog has been chosen as Mississippi’s top college football player. Running back Kylin Hill finished the regular season as the SEC’s leading rusher and this week was awarded the 24th annual C Spire Conerly Trophy. Named after Clarksdale native, Ole Miss, and New York Giant great Charlie Conerly, the award is presented to the top college football player in the state each year. The junior running back racked up 1347 yards and 10 touchdowns this season, including 132-yards in Mississippi State’s 21-20 Egg Bowl win on Thanksgiving night. That was Hill’s 8th 100-yard game of the year, tying a Bulldog single-season record. Hill was selected over 9 other finalists by a panel of statewide sports media representatives and fans.
