(Born: October 21, 1943). Hill was the first African American football player at Maryland but also at another school. In 1961, Hill received an appointment to the United States Naval Academy where he became the first African American to play football at Navy. He decided that Navy was not the right fit and so in 1962, he resigned. Shortly after this, Hill was recruited by Lee Corso to play football at Maryland. He sat out his first year at Maryland but in 1963 he became a top receiver for the team. Racism was prevalent and Hill had to deal with many threats, including a death threat before a game at South Carolina. Later, Clemson threatened to leave the conference if Hill was brought to the game between Maryland and Clemson. The game went on however and Hill proceeded to set the ACC record for pass receptions in a game.
After college, Hill played professional football for a short time. He decided to return to school and attended graduate school and entered the business world. He opened a number of business and restaurants and even conducted business with other countries. Hill is currently the Chairman of the Kids Play USA foundation which seeks to remove financial barriers from youth sports.
