BYU quarterback Taysom Hill has been named one of the top college football players to watch in 2014 by the Touchdown Club of Columbus (Ohio). Hill is one of 12 players being recognized on the TDC 2014 Players to Watch list.

A junior in 2014, Hill and other selected recipients will be formally honored at the 59th Touchdown Club of Columbus Awards Banquet at the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion in Columbus on Saturday.

A dual-threat signal caller from Pocatello, Idaho, Hill rushed for 1344 yards and passed for nearly 3000 yards as as sophomore in 2013. Under his leadership, BYU's newly installed offensive attack in 2013 ranked No. 14 in the nation in total offense and No. 10 in rushing offense. Hill's 259 yards rushing in the Cougars' win over Texas and 417 yards passing and 128 yards rushing in BYU's victory over Houston rank among the nation's best overall performances of the season.

The Touchdown Club of Columbus will also honor Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Dave Robinson, 2013 Sammy Baugh Award recipient Derek Carr and Chic Harley Award winner Jordan Lynch, in addition to a number of other local and national award recipients.
