He was not invited to the NFL Combine, but was able to showcase his abilities at West Alabama’s Pro Day. Scouts were impressed with his speed and his Pro Day workout.

His head coach at West Alabama said that at least 20 NFL teams were interested in Hill.

A former track and field star, Hill played primarily as a return specialist as a rookie but has transitioned to strictly playing wide receiver. Following his rookie year, he received the nickname “Cheetah” in reference to his speed.

He has been selected to the Pro Bowl in each of his eight seasons in the league, won Super Bowl LIV with the Chiefs, and was named to the NFL 2010s All-Decade Team as a punt returner.

Tyreek Hill house fire 

A fire at the $6.9 million US home owned by Miami Dolphins receiver Tyreek Hill was started by a child playing with a cigarette lighter in a bedroom, a fire official said Thursday.

“It was an accidental fire,” Davie Fire Marshal Robert Taylor told The Associated Press.

Taylor did not provide the age of the child, or the amount of damage caused by the fire. He said the investigation is now closed.

Miami television station WSVN showed a large amount of black smoke coming from the roof as firefighters doused the house with water.

Firefighters appeared to be working on the highest parts of the structure. Many of the bedrooms, a home theatre and a den were among the rooms upstairs, according to the property listing.

Hill’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told reporters gathered outside the house on Wednesday that some family members were home at the time of the fire.

“He and his family are safe,” Rosenhaus said. “No one was injured No. 1, no pets, so for that, we’re very grateful. We’re very grateful to the firefighters that put the fire out. Thankfully, the fire was contained to a limited area in the home. Obviously, there’ll be some smoke and water damage. It’s very difficult for anybody obviously to have your home catch on fire, but Tyreek was handling it, he and his family, with as much poise as you could hope.”

Hill has not yet commented on the matter and was not at Dolphins practice Thursday.

The local news station later aired live footage of Hill and his wife Keeta Vaccaro standing outside the home, holding hands and looking on as firefighters battled the flames. At another point after the flames appeared to be extinguished, the wide receiver could be seen holding an orange cat in his hands as he and Vaccaro looked on from the street out front.

“Tyreek Hill has left practice, everyone is out of the house and safe as there is a fire there at this time,” Palm Beach Post beat reporter Joe Schad tweeted.

Everyone inside the $6.9 million home was safe and Hill was at practice when the fire began, according to multiple reports. 

Local NBC 6 reported that Hill, 29, was at practice with the team when the fire broke out at his Southwest Ranches, Fla., home on Wednesday afternoon. 

“I think the main thing is his family is safe, his loved ones are good and he’s good as well,” quarterback Tua Tagovailoa told reporters, according to video of the Dolphins press conference shared online by NFL reporter Adam Beasley. “I know it’s a little cliche to say, but those things like that, you know, part of the house, some of those things can be replaceable but I’m just glad a lot of his family members are safe.”

Hill’s teammate said he didn’t realize the extent of the fire until a reporter had shown him a video of the house on his phone. “Damn,” Kohou said, reacting to the video, adding, “That is crazy. I didn’t know it was that bad.”

Hill bought the mansion for $6.9 million in 2022, according to Sports Illustrated. CBS News reported that heavy black and white smoke could be seen billowing out of the home as firefighters fought to control the blaze. 

High School 

A native of Douglas, Georgia, Hill attended Coffee High School, where he won both the 100 meters and 200 meters at the 2012 Georgia 5A state meet.

On May 26, 2012, at the 36th Golden South Classic in Orlando, Florida, Hill ran a new season-best in the 100 m (10.19 s) and a personal record in the 200 m (20.14 s).

His time in the 200 m missed Roy Martin’s 1985 national high school record by only one hundredth of a second.

Hill’s mark was the fastest time by a junior athlete in the 2012 season and the fastest by a junior athlete since Ramil Guliyev’s 20.04 s in 2009.

His time in the 100 m ties Abraham Hall for second fastest by a junior in the 2012 season, behind only Adam Gemili. He was Track and Field News “High School Athlete of the Year” in 2012.

Hill ran a wind-assisted (+5.0 m/s) 9.98 s in the 100-meter dash at the 2013 Hutchinson NJCCA Championships.

At Garden City Community College in Garden City, Kansas, Hill ran track and played football. As a sophomore in 2013, Hill ran for 659 rushing yards and five touchdowns while catching 67 passes for 532 receiving yards for the Broncbusters football team.

Coming out of Garden City Community College, Hill was a highly sought-after junior college recruit and chose to attend Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

On August 30, 2014, Hill made his debut for the Cowboys and caught a season-high six passes for 62 receiving yards in a loss to the Florida State Seminoles.
