JACKSON, Miss. (WCBI) — Former Mississippi State running back Kylin Hill was honored by the Hinds County Chancery Court on April 21st, 2021.
Hill was awarded for being a leading voice in the effort to change the Mississippi state flag in June of 2020.
In a viral tweet last June, Hill threatened to end his career with the Bulldogs if the former Mississippi flag, that contained a confederate flag design, did not change.
The new “In God We Trust” Mississippi state flag was approved in November of 2020.
