Kylin Hill played a role in pushing the state of Mississippi toward changing its state flag and now the leaders of Mississippi State’s athletic programs are doing what they can to finish the deal.

Hill recently issued a strong stance against the flag, offering up this comment in reaction to the growing support calling for the state to remove the Confederate logo from the state’s official flag.

“Either change the flag or I won’t be representing this State anymore and I meant that .. I’m tired,” Hill tweeted.

Now over 50 college head coaches and administrators from the state of Mississippi have descended on the state capital of Jackson to meet with lawmakers in the hopes of getting the state to change the flag.

After seeing several representatives from Mississippi State, including AD John Cohen and Mike Leach, show up in Jackson, the Bulldog running back offered up his reaction.

Leach also offered up this comment on Thursday during an appearance at the state capital:

“A flag should unify its people … This one doesn’t, so change it,” Leach said.
