The Thrill lives on in the XFL 2.0.

The opening weekend of the rebooted league came to a close with former Florida defensive back Will Hill making a game-clinching interception to secure a 15-9 victory for the St. Louis BattleHawks over the Dallas Renegades.

Hill is well-traveled in the world of professional football. After not being selected in the 2011 NFL Draft, Hill signed with the Arizona Rattlers of the Arena Football League. In May of 2012, Hill signed with the New York Giants and played there until being waived in June of 2014. Hill then landed in Baltimore, playing for the Ravens during the 2014 and ’15 seasons. Baltimore released Hill ahead of the 2016 season after learning he had failed a drug test and would be facing a 10-game suspension.

After the NFL, Hill signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League. After appearing in five games, he was released with the club citing “character concerns.” After not playing professional football in 2018, Hill signed with the Orlando Apollos of the Alliance of American Football. The Steve Spurrier-coached squad claimed the AAF championship for the incomplete 2019 season as the league folded before a champion was properly crowned.

At least this Sunday, Hill won’t be leaving the field feeling sour.
