No. 30 – Lloyd Hill (Wide Receiver 1990 – 1993)

A wide receiver that played prior to the era of the up-tempo passing game in college football checks in as the 29th best player in Texas Tech history.

As a west Texas native turned Red Raider hero, Lloyd Hill left Lubbock the school’s all-time leader in receptions (189), yards (3,059) and touchdowns (20). In 1992, the Odessa native led the nation in receptions and set school records for single-season receptions (76), yards (1,261) and touchdowns (12) on his way to being named an All-American.

Hill still sits at 4th in program history on the career receiving yards list and his 1992 season is also the 4th best single season by a receiver in Texas Tech history. He had a career game with 222 receiving yards that season against Wyoming, 9th best receiving game in program history.

The two-time All Southwest Conference receiver was drafted by the Chicago Bears in the sixth round of the 1994 NFL draft. Hill averaged 16.2-yards per catch, 69.5-yards per game, and 764.7-yards per season during his decorated career in Lubbock.
