Many BYU Football fans know the name Taysom Hill.
The former BYU quarterback recently signed with the Green Bay Packers as one of their backup quarterbacks. Hill has been in Wisconsin for the past few months and said being a part of the NFL has been an amazing experience.
Hear the full interview here.
"Green Bay is obviously a great organization with a lot of rich history so it's great to be a part of that organization," said Hill. "It's obviously been a great experience to go back and learn from and be able to work out with a guy like Aaron Rodgers. I'm looking forward to going back and competing come the end of July and in August in the preseason."
Hill is originally from Pocatello where he grew up playing football and said he wanted to come home and give back to the kids in the area.
"First of all, I wanted to have the opportunity to come back to my hometown and give back if you will. Have an opportunity to interact with the kids," said Hill. "I intend to hold a little question and answer period and if they don't have any questions I certainly have some things that I want to share with them based on the experiences that I've had playing at BYU and through these first few weeks, months that I've had in the NFL. There are some things that have gotten me a long way that I want to share with them."
The 2017 Taysom Hill Youth Football Camp is on July 6 and 7 at Highland High School in Pocatello. July 6 will be from 10 am to 1 pm for kids ages 6-18 who play any position. July 7 will be from 10 am to noon for kids ages 13-18 who play quarterback. More information and how to register can be found on Flex Work's website.
