Jan. 30 – WESTLAKE, Ohio – Hiram College senior offensive lineman Antwand Hill has been selected to receive a Postgraduate Scholarship Award from the Northeastern Ohio Chapter of the National Football Foundation.
Hill will be honored at the 29th Annual Scholar-Athlete Awards Banquet, to be hosted by the NE Ohio Chapter of the NFF at the LaCentre Banquet Facility in Westlake, Ohio on Tuesday, March 7.
Hill earned a $2,000 scholarship from the NFF which will be used to further his education in graduate school. Despite suffering a season-ending injury during his senior campaign, Hill still served as the team's captain throughout the 2016 season.
Hill was a two-year starter as an anchor for the offensive line, playing all 10 games in both his sophomore and junior seasons. Serving as the team's center, Hill was named a North Coast Athletic Conference Honorable Mention selection in 2015.
Throughout his four-year career, Hill has been an active member of the campus community, serving in a variety of roles. Currently during his senior year, he serves as the President of the Funding You Board and Vice President of Finance for the Student Senate. Additionally, he serves the campus as a Resident Assistant (RA), peer mentor and a Sexual Health and Relationship Education (SHARE) Advocate.
With plans to graduate Hiram with a degree in finance, Hill plans to move on and use the scholarship to pursue a Master's degree in accounting. He then hopes to one day roll his education into a career as a financial analyst.
"Antwand continues to make an impact on Hiram's campus every year," remarked Terrier head football coach, Henry Stanford. "From his freshman through his senior year, he has been a constant worker that continues to lead others by the example he sets. This scholarship is a well-deserved honor for such a hard worker and an even better young man."
