Tyreek Hill is a 5’10” wide receiver who plays for the Kansas City Chiefs. He was born on March 1st, 1994. He has been with the Chiefs since 2016 and helped them win the Super Bowl LIV Trophy in 2019.
Tyreek Hill was born in Pearson, Georgia. He attended Pearson Elementary as a kid. Hill was adjudged as Track and Field News “High School Athlete of the Year” in 2012. He later attended Coffee High School in Georgia, where he won both the 100 meters and 200 meters at the 2012 5A State Meet and also made the USA Today All-American Track and Field selection in the same year.
Tyreek Hill ran a 4.25s 40-meter yard dash at the Nike Sparq event in 2012. In addition to that, Hill ran a season-best in 100m race in an impressive 10.19s. His time in the 100m ties Abraham Hall for second-fastest by a junior in the 2012 season, second only to Adam Gemili.
Hill went on to attend the Garden City Community College. He was part of the Track and Football team in 2013. He registered 659 rushing yards and 5 touchdowns while catching 67 passes for 532 receiving yards while playing for Garden City.
After leaving Community College, Hill was sought after by college football teams across the country. He ended up committing to Oklahoma State University. He made his debut for the Oklahoma State Cowboys in 2014. His time at OSU was cut short after he was cut from the team for a domestic violence arrest.
However, Hill was later enrolled by the University of West Alabama and joined the team in September 2015. He was utilized both as a running back and a wide receiver during his time in Alabama. But there were doubts if Hill would be drafted in the 2016 NFL combine due to his history with the law.
The Chiefs took the gamble and drafted Hill in the 5th round of the 2016 NFL draft. Of course, they faced a lot of criticism for this decision due to his prior criminal record. However, they stuck by their decision and backed Hill to succeed by holding a press conference a day after he was drafted.
Hill has a total of 5,391 receiving yards and 57 receiving touchdowns to his name. He has been a pivotal figure for the Chiefs over the last 2 years and continues to be Patrick Mahomes’ trusted first mate on the football field.
Heading into the play-off of the 2020 season, Hill goes in with 623 Rushing yards and 1,393 Return yards for 368 receptions made, many of which were critical.
As per Celebrity Net Worth, Tyreek Hill’s net worth is estimated to be somewhere around $20 million. He signed a multi-million 3-year contract extension in 2019. His contract is worth a total of $54 million, with $35 million in guarantees.
In 2020, Hill will earn a base salary of $910,000, a roster bonus of $15,200,000 and a workout bonus of $180,000, while carrying a cap hit of $17, 740,000 and a dead cap value of $22,950,000 per Spotrac
The LIV Super Bowl Champion remains one of the biggest Offensive weapons on offer and he will continue to be critical to the franchise’s success going forward. He’s racked up a First-team All-Pro selection three times in 2016, 2018, and 2020.
Additionally, 2014 saw him win the Big 12 Offensive Newcomer of the Year. Tyreek Hill also landed on the NFL 2010’s All-Decade Team. What’s more, he’s a five-time Pro Bowl (2016-2020).
The popular Chiefs wideout is known for his philanthropic activities. He is often pictured in his hometown of Pearson participating in fundraisers and charity basketball/football games.
He is also seen helping out in local food banks in Missouri whenever he gets some time off of his busy schedule. Earlier his year, Hill participated in a food drive to generate meals for the people affected by the COVID-19 crisis in America.
He is represented by popular sports agent Drew Rosenhaus. Hill endorses Grip Boost Inc. and also owns an unspecified stake in the organizations that produce football gloves and grip gel. He has also designed a signature glove of his own for the company. The star-studded receiver’s Yellow Peace Football Gloves feature a design that allows wearers to show Hill’s “peace sign” gesture on the palms.
