Kenny Hill may have been nicknamed “Kenny Football” for a day but that has quickly come to an end.

Hill, who is the successor to Johnny “Football” Manziel, lit the sports world on fire with his 511-yard passing performance for Texas A&M last week. Instantly the comparisons to Manziel started.

Hill actually doesn’t want to go by the nickname “Kenny Football” — He wants to be known as “Kenny Trill.”

Rapper Bun B, who also uses the nickname “Trill” and has an album named ‘Trill,’ doesn’t know if the name is acceptable yet.

But that’s not even the good part of this story.

Hill doesn’t take pictures with other students or fans and politely declines requests, per orders by the head coach Kevin Sumlin. That’s probably smart since Manziel seemed to get himself in trouble with some photos.

Hill also doesn’t have a cell phone, as it has been broken, and he doesn’t have cable in his house so he has managed to stay away from the hype.

I say good for Hill, he seems to have a good head on his shoulders.
