If it wasn’t official before, it is now: Kenny Hill is Kenny Football.
Johnny Manziel sent out the following tweet shortly after Hill captivated the nation in his Texas A&M debut on Thursday night.
KENNY FOOTBALL!!! #GigEm

Hill made easy work of the South Carolina Gamecocks, completing 44-of-60 passes for 511 yards and 3 touchdowns. That was not a typo. In fact, Hill set the A&M record for most passing yards in a single game during the 52-28 win.
School record passing yards for Kenny Hill. Stands at 487 with 8:21 left. Old record was 464 by some guy named Johnny Manziel — Texas A&M Football (@AggieFootball) August 29, 2014
If Kenny Football keeps playing like this, Manziel may not be missed that much around College Station.
*UPDATE* Upon further review, Kenny Hill may not be Kenny Football, or at least he doesn’t want to be. Sorry he’s not sorry, Johnny.
Hill: I don’t really like “Kenny Football.” [crowd burst in laughter]

What about … Kenny Powers? No?
Are you sure, because this looks pretty much like a scene out of Williams-Brice Stadium on Thursday night.
