Wisconsin Badgers Video of the Day, 7/18: P.J. Hill's stellar 2006 season

Happy weekend!

Let's kickstart this Friday by basking in the glory that was P.J. Hill. The former Wisconsin running back rumbled and tumbled his way to 44 total touchdowns, tied for second in program history. He was also the Big Ten's Freshman of the Year and a second-team honoree in 2006, but his attempts, yardage and touchdowns decreased from there on out. One Tim Tebow won the 2007 Heisman Trophy, though Hill still managed to pick up an honorable-mention All-Big Ten selection and rushed for over 1,200 yards while averaging 5.2 yards per carry. He was picked up by the New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent following the 2009 NFL Draft and last played in the league with Drew Brees and the Saints in 2010 as a member of the team's practice squad.
