Hall’s season high passing came in the BSU 66-20 win over St. Augustine’s. The 6’4″ quarterback connected on 74 percent of his passes torching the Falcons for 433 yards and 6 TDs. The Junior followed that performance up a month later passing for 5 touchdowns and 281 yards in the only regular season loss the Bulldogs experienced falling to Virginia State 47-35. Amir will be back next season and if your not impressed with the number of yards (3519) or the number of TDs he passed for in 2017 (41). Think about this, 381 times Hall put the ball in the air completing 249 passes and he was only intercepted 4 times in 11 games. “Showtime” also ran the ball 91 times and scored 8 touchdowns finishing with 432 yards on the ground.
