Hill Enjoys Elite Camp

West Lowndes standout Brandon Hill had the chance to put his skills to the test on Sunday as an invited participant of the Scout.com Southeast Elite Camp on the campus of the University of Alabama. Hill believes he made a good showing for himself.

"I learned a lot," said Hill of the his experience. "We worked a lot on the agility drills. They taught me how to get a better take off on my 40 and how to run all of the drills better."

Brandon reports perhaps the biggest lesson he learned will help him on the field of play.

"The biggest thing they showed me was some techniques to get away from the cornerbacks," said Hill. "They showed me some things that will help me."

Brandon is tucked away at a small high school in northeast Mississippi, West Lowndes. Despite his humble surroundings, Hill believed he matched up well with some of the south's top talent.

"I feel like I was one of the better receivers there," said Brandon. "I feel like I did real good in the one-on-ones and the 7-on-7s. I liked having the chance to compete."

Hill was one of a handful of Mississippi prospects who made the trip over for the day's event.

"I had already met Matthew Wells, the running back from Lawrence County before," said Brandon. "We had a good time. We were talking noise to each other out there. We have a real good relationship. I am trying to persuade him to come to (Mississippi) State.

"I had met one of the DBs before (Asian Ruff). He looked real good out there and he's real cool too."

At the end of the day, Hill is grateful for the opportunity he had to go and sharpen his skills. He plans to bring the lessons learned home to his teammates.

"I am going to be working hard on my footwork and I am going to show everybody they agility drills, so they can get better too," said Brandon. "I had never done most of those drills and they are good drills to know. I am going to work with my teammates to help them on their drills and on getting more flexible hips."
