Justice Hill Earns Freshman All-American Honors from USA TODAY

[USATSI]

Justice Hill’s postseason accoloades continue to roll in after a monster true freshman campaign for the Cowboys. Hill was named the Big 12 freshman player of the year just a week ago, and earned a spot on the All-Big 12 second team alongside Oklahoma Sooners running back Samaje Perine.

The former Booker T. Washington standout finished his regular season with 1,042 rushing yards on just 187 attempts and rushed for more than 100 yards 5 times this season. Quite an accomplishment considering the Pokes had not had a 100-yard rusher in a game all of last season.

To top off the awards, perhaps his most notable feat was surpassing Thurman Thomas’ true freshmen rushing mark of 843 yards. With 1,042 yards, he not has stamped his name all over the OSU record book, but could wind up claiming the freshmen rushing record nationally.

    That is SO great! Congrats to him…hope the B12 gets really sick of him over the next 3 years!

  • David Einstein

    Next two years will be special.

  • oklahomey

    he should be on kick return and punt return for next season, no?

    • Zack

      Meh, he is slippery but I don’t think he has the breakaway speed needed on the return team.

    • sammysanko

      That would be Tyron Johnson I bet

      • Andrew Ferguson

        Or Chuba Hubbard.

        • Big D

          Hubbard for sure

        • David Einstein

          Chuba is a good call.

    This is a well deserved honor.
