BYU football fans’ dreams of a Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback and perfect record season were cut short in Friday night’s game against Utah State when BYU quarterback Taysom Hill was taken out of a game with a season-ending tackle.
Hill has since undergone a two-hour surgery to fix his fractured left leg.
“One plate, eight screws,” said coach Bronco Mendenhall about the surgery to Deseret News. “Every major ligament shredded. It’s significant. (Doctors) knew it was bad. When they got in there, it was worse.”
Hill is expected to be out for four to six months. If you are still grieving Hill’s loss, read this humorous account and know others are suffering alongside you.
