FORT WORTH, Texas -- When Kenny Hill first got to TCU, after a semester away from the big-college atmosphere, he thought his new teammates might have their own idea of Kenny Trill -- his quarterback alter ego who had a dynamic debut succeeding a Heisman Trophy winner at Texas A&M, and also a quick downfall.So Hill kept his head down, didnt say much and just tried to prove he was deserving of the second chance.He came in being very humble. As soon as he came in, you could tell he came in trying to prove himself through his work ethic to gain our trust and confidence, senior receiver Deante Gray said Tuesday. Hes been very transparent with everybody, very open in talking to everybody and just becoming a Frog.On Saturday, Hill is starting for 13th-ranked TCU in its season opener at home against South Dakota State. And he is beyond grateful to coach Gary Patterson and the Horned Frogs for the opportunity on college footballs highest level again.Hill hasnt played since replacing Johnny Manziel for the 2014 season, which opened with him setting a Texas A&M single-game record with 511 yards passing in a 52-28 win at South Carolina in primetime. The Aggies started 5-0, but then lost three straight while Hill struggled. Later, he was suspended two games for violating team rules and didnt play again.Instead of immediately going to TCU, Hill spent the 2015 spring semester taking classes at a junior college near his home in nearby Southlake, Texas, spending time with family and also visiting Horned Frogs practices in the spring.It just allowed me to like reflect and really find out more about myself and grow as a person, said Hill, the son of former major league pitcher Ken Hill. And it gave me a chance to like to go back to church, and get right with the man upstairs something, which is something I needed.After the fast success with the Aggies, people started calling him Kenny Football in line with Manziels moniker. The quarterback instead preferred Kenny Trill -- a play off the hybrid hip-hop adjective combining true and real. His parents even sought a trademark to the nickname.It was crazy, blowing up overnight like that, Hill said. Its something like you always dream of and you always want, but at the same time, I wasnt really ready for it yet.Hills suspension for violating team rules was his second at Texas A&M. The previous spring, before becoming the starter as a sophomore, Hill was arrested in College Station and charged with public intoxication and giving police a fake name. He was reinstated before training camp and allowed to compete for the starting job.After Hill left College Station, one of his former high school coaches reached out to Sonny Cumbie, the TCU co-offensive coordinator who was at Texas Tech when he recruited the Texas prep state champion. Hill then met with Patterson, who already knew what happened but wanted to hear it from the young quarterback.That was probably the toughest thing is just going back and talking through all that, Hill saidPatterson encouraged Hill to attend junior college to get out of the limelight, kind of below the surface. He wasnt going to be able to play for TCU last season anyway because of NCAA transfer rules.He needed to get back and just get back to being Kenny Hill, the kid I knew when I recruited him out of high school, Patterson said. I did it more for the betterment for him, than it was me. Obviously youd to like to get him in, but it was one of those things, you didnt need to have kids here asking questions.Cumbie, the TCU quarterback coach, said Hill seems more guarded since high school. But Cumbie also sees a player that has matured and is motivated to prove his early success at Texas A&M was no fluke.Hes already proven himself for real to some at TCU. All-Big 12 defensive end Josh Carraway said it can be frustrating chasing the elusive quarterback in practice.They call it a sack, but in my head, Im thinking no way I got him, Carraway said, about when the whistle blows stopping plays. Theres no way, nobodys catching him. Jesus Sucre Jersey . LOUIS -- Theres no telling how these wacky World Series games will end. Rob Refsnyder Jersey . Capitals head coach Adam Oates said Ovechkin was injured in the first period against the Vancouver Canucks on Monday and clarified it was not a head injury. http://www.officialraysgearshop.com/ . -- Vincent Lecavalier got everything but the desired result in his return to Tampa Bay. Matt Duffy Jersey . Andrew Luck lost his favourite target and the Indianapolis locker room lost one of its most revered leaders when Reggie Wayne was diagnosed Monday with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee that will cost him the rest of the season. Joey Wendle Jersey .Y. -- Knicks coach Mike Woodson said Wednesday that J. Donald Tiripano makes for an unlikely, everyday cricketing hero. Well under six feet tall, he occasionally tops 130kph with the ball and just about holds his own the bat, without getting too bolshy. But against West Indies at Queens Sports Club on Saturday afternoon, he showed his mettle as a cricketer and became just the hero Zimbabwe needed. With six deliveries in the final over Tiripano sparked the unlikeliest of comebacks, taking three wickets and giving away just three runs to help Zimbabwe tie.To me, it was my dream, Tiripano said, holding back welling emotions. I was talking to myself, saying. This is the chance Ive been waiting for since I was a little kid. I grew up playing cricket in the streets. I was just thinking about that. Thinking Just be positive. Nothing to fear. Just express yourself. That positivity and that faith ... I just thank God for this. Its great for me. Its something that many wish for in their lives, to save a match for their country. Its a blessing.He had opened the bowling earlier, trapping Johnson Charles lbw with an inducker before the opener could really get going. His opening spell of 1 for 24 was useful, but not flashy - and certainly gave no indication of the heroics that would come later, when he was called upon by his captain Graeme Cremer to bowl the final over of this match, with just four runs to defend. With his second ball, he had the dangerous, World T20-winning Carlos Brathwaite caught at long on. With his third, he ran Ashley Nurse out by deflecting a firm drive from Jason Holder back onto the non-strikers stumps.Suddenly, hope surged. After a leg bye, he might have had Jonathan Carter caught in the deep, but Chamu Chibhabha couldnt quite get to the chance despite a stupendous effort. The batsmen crossed, levelling the scores. It all came down to the final delivery, and when Tiripano beat Holders drive with a full, wide slower ball and PJ Moor threw down the stumps, the Zimbabweans unleashed their unrestrained joy. This wasnt a win, but it sure felt like one.[Cremer] just said Back yourself, and do what youve been doing before, Tiripano explained after the breathless finish to the game. So I just backed myself to bowl that slower ball, that I usually know is difficult to hit. Keep it simple. I didnt want to use too many variations, just that slower ball because there was assistance from the wicket. So I didnt have to bowl yorkers or anything. Just use the wicket to help me.I tried to bowl that last ball fuller, because there wasnt much pace in the wicket so it would be difficult to hit over the top. I bowled it ffuller, and he didnt hit it.dddddddddddd Im just so happy we managed to pull out a tie, out of nothing.Then there was his batting. Tiripano was the only member of Zimbabwes bottom seven to reach double figures, and he took them past 250 and to their highest ODI score this year with a clean six (his first in ODIs) off Shannon Gabriel, the quickest bowler in this tri-series. I knew before he bowled that the ball would be fuller, because hed bowled a few back-of-a-length deliveries, Tiripano explained with nonchalance. So I just anticipated before the ball was bowled. I was right there to hit it.Tiripanos resistance was emblematic of the spirit shown by the Zimbabwean side today, which left coach Heath Streak a very proud man. Im proud of the fact that they never gave up, Streak said. They managed to claw it back. It was excellent. Those last seven or eight overs were brilliant. The guys took it to the wire. Cricket is funny. If you take it into the last over, its amazing what can happen with that pressure.Probably in the last three overs, I started thinking: We can do this, Streak added. We got a couple of wickets, and I knew Brathwaite and the skipper Holder can hit a long ball, so I was always worried about the damage they can do. But the wicket was pretty tough. It was gripping and I thought Mpofu and Williams bowled really well. And then obviously Donald bowled that last over really well under pressure. He bowled some superb balls. Im very proud of how they fought.Yet Streak was also realistic about the areas in which Zimbabwe fell short today. They missed three chances off centurion Shai Hopes bat, and their fumbles in the field dissipated the pressure being built up on the batsmen.We know that were better than what we showed in the field, Streak said. Thats the only disappointment. We dropped opportunities and we had a lot of fumbles. We know were better than that. Its something I know the guys are going to have to work on, getting those fielding standards up, but the fact that we were able to tie and not have had our best day in the field is probably a good omen for us, because we know weve still got room for improvement.Despite todays tie, weve still got a lot of work to do to get ourselves to the final, Streak added. Monday (against Sri Lanka) is an important game for us. Weve just to make sure we come out with that same positivity. We have a big game on Monday, but weve got to take it one over at a time, one ball at a time.
