A&M QB prefers unique nickname over Kenny Football

Just call him Kenny Trill.
Many, including Johnny Manziel himself, started calling new Texas A&M quarterback Kenny Hill by the nickname Kenny Football after his record-setting 511-yard passing game in an upset of South Carolina last week.
But the sophomore quarterback says that's Manziel's thing - and he prefers Kenny Trill.
Though trill is a word to describe a vibratory sound, that's not what it means in rap culture. It's a hybrid of true and real and has long been used by Texas rapper Bun B, who calls himself Bun B Trill OG.
Hill says scores of people have approached him for pictures. They won't get them: Hill says coach Kevin Sumlin told him not to take them because "Johnny got in so much trouble over pictures."
