PROVO, Utah (AP) - Near the end of BYU's final fall scrimmage, Taysom Hill showcased his knack for making big plays.
One drive featured Hill ripping off a long sprint to set up an easy touchdown. The sophomore quarterback then delivered a pass covering 56 yards to tight end Brett Thompson to set up another score.
Hill is eager to prove he is the right quarterback to be at the controls of BYU's new up-tempo attack. He showed a glimpse of his game-changing abilities as a freshman a year ago. He played in six games, starting in two, before a torn knee ligament in the final minute of a 6-3 victory over Utah State ended his season.
Before the injury, Hill demonstrated he could be a true dual-threat quarterback.
