Special Guest

Taysom Hill

New Orleans Saints Quarterback
At Brigham Young University, Taysom Hill became a Heisman Trophy candidate for his 2015 football season. He finished his collegiate career as the No. 1 QB in rushing at BYU, No. 4 in career total offense (averaged 263.4 yards), No. 5 overall in rushing (2,815 yards), and No. 5 in career touchdowns (75).

After leaving BYU, Taysom started his NFL career with the Green Bay Packers before signing with the New Orleans Saints after the 2017 preseason. Since joining the Saints, he has been used in a variety of ways, showing that even though he is a quarterback first, he can help contribute to his team in other aspects. From being the primary kick returner to being used as a running back and tight end, Taysom has become the coveted "Swiss army knife" of the Saints team.
