Josh Hill
Merrimack | DE | Sr.
6-3 | 275 | Glastonbury, Conn.

2016 Key Statistics: Has appeared in all 10 games through Nov. 7 … Leads the Northeast-10 Conference with eight sacks … That figure ranks sixth in Merrimack’s single-season history for sacks … Averages 4.5 tackles per game and has totaled 45 tackles (23 solo) on the year, ranking seventh on the team in that category … 12.5 of those tackles have been for losses totaling 70 yards, the highest such figure on the team … His two forced fumbles also lead the team, and he has broken up five passes (3rd/team).

Career Awards and Accomplishments: Appeared in no fewer than 10 games in each of his four seasons … Ranks second in school history in career sacks (22) … In 42 games, has recorded 168 tackles (100 solo), averaging 4.0 tackles per game for his career … Also has forced six fumbles and broken up nine passes in that span … Northeast-10 All-Conference Second Team as a junior in 2015.

Team Record and Honors: Team is 2-8 on the year, finishing ninth place in the NE-10 Conference.

Coach’s Comment: “Josh Hill had the potential for an All-American season before the year began, and he has clearly lived up to that potential. He is 3-1/2 sacks away from a single-season program record, and he was the glue that held together a defensive line that was besieged by injuries over the course of the season. Opposing teams have based their offensive schemes around keeping the ball away from Josh, which is why his tackle figures may not be as high as they might have been in years past. Losing Tyree Holmes, another candidate for a breakout season, before the year started thinned out the defensive line, otherwise he and Josh could have had the potential to form a lethal 1-2 combo in the trenches. Still, there is a reason why Josh is a two-time captain, one of the few in our program’s history. He leads by example, he is a role model for the younger players around him, and he is a humble, quiet and modest young man who expects nothing and earns everything through his unbelievable work ethic that is second to none.” (Dan Curran)

His ability to rush the passer and dominate the run have been critical in helping our defense slow down some very productive PSAC offenses. Vic changed positions this summer, moving from OLB to DE. I credit his work ethic and his position coach Colin Neely for the tremendous transition. Not only is Vic one of our best players, but he is also an exemplary student. Vic excels in all areas of his life and he is a great role model for our football team.” (Justin Lustig)
