2010:168 pass attempts
2009:168 pass attempts
Only Army, Navy, and Air Force had less pass attempts (in the FBS) in those years. Good luck trying to get catches when they never throw the ball...
Also, D. Thomas was hogging up 46 passes for Hill's freshman year.
I will say I had Thomas' stats mixed up with his highschool stats.
That being said, 120 catches for 2,339 yards and 14 TDs in his career at GT.
2007: 35 receptions, 558 yards, 4TDs (FR).
2008: 39 receptions, 627 yards, 3TDs (SO).
2009: 46 receptions, 1154 yards, 8TDs (JR).
So, in the same amount of pass attempts at GT he caught twice as many passes as a JR. He was redshirted btw so he had another year of eligibility. So he played as many years as Stephen Hill so there goes the whole JR/SR argument. That was partly my fault. Here are Hill's career stats.
2009: 6 receptions, 137 yards, 1 TD (FR).
2010: 15 receptions, 291 yards, 3 TDs (SO).
2011: 28 receptions, 820 yards, 5 TDs (JR).
Stop comparing him to Thomas. Stop talking about the pass attempts because Thomas did twice as much as Hill under the same amount of attempts and put up nearly double the TDs. Not the same player. No excuses. He has a lot to work to do on top of that. Hill had 1 season, ONE SEASON, where he put up BIG yards because he's a one dimensional receiver. Thomas had a consistent career FR-JR year. He caught more receptions as a FR than Hill did as a JR. There's a lot of reasons for me to believe Hill is a flash in the pan bust player. I'm not basing this off of anything other than what he's shown in his entire career.
