Bend But Never Break

Keanu Hill is a 22yr old communications major who has a nact for the defensive back position. Hailing from the Carson area Hill has been battling on the gridiron for 15yrs. Out of high school he wasn't highly recruited and his only offer was a partial from Azusa Pacific. So instead of settling Hill took his talents to LBCC to keep his dream of playing D1 alive. With Brett Peabody taking the helm over at city it was an easy decision for Hill to choose LBCC. He was a Viking for 3 years, because of injuries and eligibility issues that kept him from moving on. In his final season he had some of his best games against Moorpark recording an interception, and Riverside City where he had 9 tackles! After his last season as a Viking he received an offer from Tulsa University where he later ended up signing, and fulfilled his dream of playing at the D1 level! He describes his situation as a "tremendous blessing", because there were moments in his journey where he doubted he would make it so having his schooling, housing, and meal plan paid for is something he is forever grateful for. Although he has reached a huge milestone the grind doesn't stop here Hill's next milestone is to make it to the NFL. Ultimately Hill wants touse his voice and resources as a professional football player to give back and stand up for the injustice in America toward black people.  Everyone and everything around Hill contributes to his inspiration. He's inspired by friends, family, God, where he is from but most importantly Hill is inspired by his lows, the defining moments in a persons live. Keanu Hill is proof that if you weather the storm and be patient your opportunity will come and when it comes it's up to you to cease the moment. We believe Hill will take advantage of his opportunity with the same grit and determination that got him his spot at TU.
