Antwaun Hillary - Strom Thurmond



Profile: Antwaun made his presence felt in both passing and rushing last season as a junior. He passed for 923 yards and ran for 615. The 6-foot, 180-pounder will team with his cousin, running back Daryl Hillary, in leading the Rebels to postseason hopes. Antwaun is a three-year starter for Strom Thurmond at quarterback and is already receiving strong interest from the Division I-AA level, but could boost his prospects with a standout season. Antwaun and Daryl are nephews of Ira Hillary, a former University of South Carolina and NFL wide receiver.

Vitals: 6-0, 180; 4.7 40, Bench: 265; Squat: 370

Brian Smith on Hillary: "He is just phenomenal in what he can do with a football. He really can excel in any position on the field. We count on him for a lot of different things because he brings so much leadership to the table."

Antwaun Hillary on Hillary: "I'm just looking for a winning record this year. My goal is to pass and run for a 1,000 yards. He (Ira Hillary) tells me stuff about being a quarter back and a leader because I want to get better and everybody want to move on to the next level."
