B.J. Hill says he could ‘definitely beat’ Eli...


Football players squaring off against one another in a game of basketball? It’s usually not pretty as few football players are built for the vertical challenges of basketball.

Such is the case with the Manning brothers, showing why they made their living playing NFL football. Both Peyton and Eli stand 6-foot-5 and we know they played basketball in high school but their skills are nothing to brag about.

That is why current New York Giants defensive lineman B.J. Hill believes he can take his former teammate, El, in a game of one-on-one.

Hill is 6-foot-3 and 311 pounds and played basketball in high school down in North Carolina. And as it turns out, he was actually quite talented on the court.

“All I heard when I first started helping out was how big and strong this B.J. kid was,” former West Stanly High School varsity assistant coach Zach Powell told Giants Wire. “I thought there is no way he’d be able to move me in the post.

“We were doing post drills one day and he was matched up with a guard, and I said I have to see what all the hype was about and pushed the guard out of the way. [Hill] proceeded to put my [expletive] into the wall with a drop step.”

Eli is ultra-competitive, but odds are Hill could handle him with relative ease.
