Hill's first college pass went for an 18-yard touchdown pass to Kaneakua Friel in the Cougars' 30-6 win over Washington State.
His description of the play:
"My plan originally was to run it. It was 4th and 1, and I knew we had to get the first down. I had the edge and I knew I could have run for the first down.
I was getting ready to tuck and run, then I looked up and I saw Kane and he was wide open, and luckily I was able to throw it over and not do anything to special, and get the touchdown.
I hope I have more [easy] touchdown passes like that. But I don't anticipate it."
Hill said coaches found the perfect time to call the play.
"I was antsy the whole game, ever since the game started. I knew at some point we were going to run it, so I was just waiting to get called up. I wasn't very nervous. Like I said, I felt prepared, and I felt confident with the preparation that I had started in January, ever since I started working out.
So with the preparation since January, through spring ball and fall camp, and practice and the plays that we ran, I needed to go execute. We needed to go get that first down, and it turned into a touchdown, which, was fantastic. We couldn't have drawn it up any better."
