Video: Mansfield's Hill lends 'assist' to Hornets' TD

October, 21, 2012
Mansfield High sophomore Brendan Hill has quickly earned a reputation around the Hockomock League for his exploits on the basketball court. On Saturday, the 6-foot-5 Hill, who's also a standout wide receiver on the Hornets' football team, took the term assist to an entirely different level.

In the first quarter of Mansfield's 46-33 win over King Philip, Hill used his height advantage to tip a pass from quarterback Kyle Wisnieski up and over to fellow receiver Mike Hershman, who took care of the rest, completing a 55-yard touchdown play.

Hornets head coach Mike Redding provided the following video of the play. Hill (No. 19) is lined up toward the near sideline with Hershman (No. 1) in the slot.
