Texas A&M QB Kenny Hill decides 'Kenny Trill' would be a good nickname, but what does it mean?

The Texas A&M college football-loving world believes new starting quarterback Kenny Hill needs a nickname and won’t rest until he picks one. And he’s already refused Johnny Manziel’s offer to pass on the “Football” moniker.

So, during the Aggies press conference today, Hill, who threw for more than 500 yards in his first career start against South Carolina, begrudgingly chose one:

The term “trill” refers to a person who keeps it real and was popularized by the Houston rap group UGK. UGK was a favorite of former quarterback Johnny Manziel and apparently Hill, who grew up in Southlake, Texas, just a few hours from Houston, is a big fan as well.

Rapper Bun B, who is half of the group UGK, said on Twitter was OK with Hill using the term, but wanted to make sure he earned it first.

But the name appears to be a hit with A&M.

Even offensive coordinator Jake Spavital said he liked the name even though he didn’t know what it meant.

So, I guess that’s that.

All hail new Texas A&M quarterback Kenny Trill. We’ll see if he lives up to the nickname of keeping it real.
