Richmond Vs. Georgia State: Kelton Hill Enjoys New Role

In three games for the Georgia State Panthers in 2012, junior Kelton Hill has had three different roles.

He started the season as a backup quarterback, moved to defensive back and kick returner two weeks ago and then switched over to play as a wide receiver last week.

Now, with the injury to wide receiver Jordan Giles, Hill is practicing with the first team in the run up to Georgia State's game with Richmond on Saturday.

In an interview with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Hill talked about the differences in the many hats he's been wearing for Bill Curry's team this year and how he's adjusted to playing as a wide-out:

"Standing in the pocket, you have more stuff to think about," he said. "When you are returning kicks, you are just running, looking for seams. [Playing WR] is lot more fun. It takes a lot of stress off. It's just about playing ball now."

Curry has been trying to find a role for the 6'0, 183-pound wideout to showcase his athleticism all season, and the coaching staff is hoping that the third time will prove the charm on Saturday.
