Embracing Role Model Status: Acknowledging That Young People Often Glorify Athletes, Michigan State's Chris Hill Embraces His Responsibility as a Role Model
Keels, Crystal L.
Black Issues in Higher Education, v22 n4 p36 Apr 2005
It was "the unbelievable family atmosphere" that drew Chris Hill to Michigan State University's basketball program. And it has proven to be a good fit for the 6'3" Spartan guard. In his senior season, he has helped his team return to the Sweet Sixteen in the NCAA tournament. In his first year, Hill became the team's second leading scorer, led his squad in three-point field goals, ranked second in assists and was the co-recipient of the MSU Unsung Player Award, as well as the recipient of the MSU Provost Award as freshman student-athlete of the year.
