The Green Bay Blizzard are excited to announce the signing of IFL Hall of Famer B.J. Hill.
B.J. Hill (5’9, 185) will return to Green Bay for the 2019 season after being named IFL’s 2018 Special Teams Player of the Year. After a 4 year hiatus from football, Hill returned in 2018 to set the IFL on fire. Hill lead the league in kick return yards (1,217), kick return touchdowns (4), and all purpose yards (1,837). B. J. also appeared at running back in 7 games last season, rushing for four touchdowns and averaging 4.4 yards per carry.
Hill, part of the 2015 IFL Hall of Fame class and the only number retired by the Green Bay Blizzard, will look to add to his all time totals in 2019. B.J. is already the IFL All Time leader in kick return yards (4,602), kick return touchdowns (17), and ranks third for All Time all purpose yards (6,598).
“I know people will wonder why I came back for another season, my response to that is why not. There will be a time when I can’t play the game, so if I can compete at a high level and help the Blizzard in our pursuit of a championship, I will!”- B.J. Hill.
“For B.J. to come back during the 2018 season and win IFL Special Teams Player of Year after four years away from the game speaks not only to his skill but his work ethic. B.J. brings leadership, passion, and a will to win.” - Coach Roberson.
B.J. is arguably the most electrifying player in indoor football when he has the ball in his hands, so get your popcorn ready Green Bay!
