Former Michigan football corner Lavert Hill earns All-XFL
It may not be the NFL, but earning big-time honors in any league is great news. And former Michigan football standout cornerback, Lavert Hill, received that news on Monday.
Hill was named to the All-XFL team on Monday. Hill played the season with the St. Louis Battlehawks, who went 7-3, and Hill recorded 25 tackles and two interceptions during the 10 games played.
The former Wolverine played with the maize and blue from 2016-2019. He came to Michigan as a four-star recruit and was a four-year letterman at Michigan. Hill was not selected in the 2020 NFL draft, but was scooped up by the Kansas City Chiefs as an undrafted free agent. He had short practice squad stints with a few NFL teams before landing with the Battlehawks.

During his Michigan playing days, Hill was a third-team All-American in his junior year and was a Jim Thorpe Award semifinalist that same season. Hill started 38 games for the Wolverines during his career, and was a three-time All-Big Ten honoree.
Hopefully Hill did enough in the XFL to get another shot in the NFL.
