Harlon Hill Trophy


Harlon Hill Trophy

The Harlon Hill Trophy has been awarded annually since 1986 to the NCAA Division II college football player of the year. Harlon Hill was a standout player as an offensive end at Florence State Teachers College (now the University of North Alabama), being named an NAIA All-American in his senior year (1953). He later had a successful career in the NFL, playing for the Chicago Bears (1954-1961), Pittsburgh Steelers (1962), and Detroit Lions (1962). Hill was the NFL's Rookie of the Year in 1954 and its Most Valuable Player in 1955. He was a three-time All-Pro selection (1954-1956).

The trophy, 30 inches tall and 63 pounds in weight, is a full-size replica of a football resting on a solid walnut base.
