Amir Hall Places Fourth in Harlon Hill Ballot

Bowie State quarterback Amir Hall placed fourth in the 2018 Division II College Football Player of the Year race. 

Out of the nine finalists, Hall was the only HBCU representative on the ballot. He received 12 first place votes, 16 second place votes, and 10 third place votes.

With or without the Harlon Hill Trophy, Hall had an amazing year. Let’s run down the accolades from just this season.

Hall led BSU to its first ten-win season. He additionally clinched the first-ever victories in the CIAA Championship and the NCAA D2 Playoff opening round in program history.

The “Surgeon”  was awarded 2018 CIAA Offensive Player of the Year, HBCU Gameday Offensive Player of the Year, and is a finalist for Black College Football Player of the Year and Doug Williams Offensive Player of the Year. Hall also set two CIAA records with his 11,358 career passing yards and 102 passing touchdowns. This season, he led the nation with 4,152 passing yards. And in January, he will participate in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl.

But what was the most important accomplishment of them all? That accoldade is Hall earning his Bachelor’s degree from BSU on Friday.
