North Little Rock wideout K.J. Hill has had yet another fantastic season and the Arkansas commit will lead his team in a second-round Class 7A state home playoff game against Fort Smith Northside on Friday.
But Hill (6-1, 190) had a big honor bestowed on him Monday morning when he was presented with his U.S. Army All-American Bowl jersey during a ceremony at his school.
He joins Los Alamitos, Calif., punter Blake Johnson (6-1, 190) as current Razorback 2015 commits that have been selected to play in the game, which invites 90 of the nation's top players.
"K.J. is just a great football player and a great representative for our school," North Little Rock head coach Brad Bolding said earlier.
Hill finished up his regular season by rolling up 379 all-purpose yards in a 59-22 win over Little Rock Central.
He will head into the playoffs with 47 catches for 858 yards and 11 touchdowns, 43 carries for 349 yards and seven more scores, returned 10 punts for 129 yards and a TD and six kickoff for 199 yards and another score.
North Little Rock is 9-1 this season and had a bye in the opening round of the playoffs.
