The Lass Word: Kylin Hill's Fall Could Be Big Lift for Pack

You dial up the video on running back Kylin Hill. You watch him take a handoff, burst through a hole over left guard, and cut to the near sideline where a cornerback with a perfect angle awaits him to make the tackle. Instead, Hill springs into a hurdler position and leaps completely over the defender and continues down field for a 22 yard gain.

Then, first and goal from the five yard line, Hill takes the ball straight up the gut and meets a linebacker twice his size at the two. Hill lowers his shoulder and drives the defender backward into the end zone with him.
