By Greg Williams
WV Director of Scouting

Houston HillHouston Hill has put together two solid seasons of high school baseball entering his junior year in the spring of 2014. The 6-foot-1, 175-pound 3B/1B, hit .305 with 15 RBI and 19 runs scored as a starter his freshman season. Hill followed that up by hitting .278 while scoring 23 runs in 2013.

The two-year starter added an additional dimension to his game as a sophomore stealing 12 bases. He will join a veteran Indians' roster that will look for big things in 2014. Sissonville returns 13 players to its varsity roster next spring, losing just two seniors to graduation.

Hill is also a talented wide receiver in the fall for the Indians' football team. He caught 30 passes as a junior for a 19.7 yards per catch average and scored five touchdowns.
