Treydonte Hill is a wide receiver for the Fan Controlled Football League. He heads into his second season with the FCF after spending the 2020 season in the XFL with the Los Angeles Wildcats. Hill is a sub 4.4 wide receiver and has been declared by some as the fastest man in the Fan Controlled Football League.
Treydonte Hill is the type of player who has always turned heads, his teams have always known that he was a big play waiting to happen, and his style has suited the arena league style of play well. When the game goes from a 100 yard by 50 yard field, to a 50 yard by 35 yard field everything becomes more condensed. This smaller playing field results in a much faster style of play where teams place a premium on receivers that can get open quickly. That’s where Hill shines.
The dual sport athlete in college has used his background running track to find a successful role as a return man at the professional level early on before beginning to develop more of a role on offense. His career began with a rough start. He would find himself going undrafted in the 2018 NFL draft. He would land a try-out with the Frank Reich led Colts but ultimately nothing came of it. For a period of time following this try out Hill actually found himself without a place to live. Struggling through homelessness, and still managing to achieve his dream of playing football professionally is the ultimate inspiring story.
In rough times Hill turned to a familiar distraction, anime. Hill grew up watching anime, and found a place in this world as well helping create the storyline for “Most Peaceful Way to Die”. Treydonte Hill then found the opportunity he truly needed at the American National Combine. He blistered his way to a 4.3 40 yard dash, and then found his first professional football opportunity.
His performance landed him on the top of the hotlist for the ANC, which caught the attention of the Indoor Football League. He would spend the 2019 season with the Tuscan Sugar Skulls contributing primarily on special teams as a return man. He would collect 13 returns for 236 yards before suffering an injury.
In 2020 he was able to parlay this performance with the IFL, into an opportunity with the XFL. Originally he landed with the Los Angeles Wildcats, before spending some time on XFL team 9 the league wide practice roster, and ultimately landed in Dallas before the 2020 season was cancelled after 5 games due to covid 19.
Despite the league being shut down, Hill landed on his feet once again. This time he was signed with the Fan Controlled Football League where he has now stuck for 2 seasons. Hill is the exact type of receiver the FCF needs, that can bring excitement and big plays to a league built completely off of fan interaction and interest.
