Coach Shane McGregor’s quote: “Hobbs Dill is a quintessential Cambria Cambria football player. He’s tough, he’s smart, he makes timely plays and he makes plays he’s probably not supposed to make. He steps up and relies on his preparation and the things we do in practice to make things happen. He’s factored largely into the success we’ve had the last couple years.”
