Jon Hilliman found the end zone more than any running back on Rutgers’ roster a year ago, and now he’s in the end zone as an NFL player.
Friday night, Hilliman scored his first career touchdown as a member of the New York Giants. It crossed the goal line on a 10-yard run, juking past Chicago Bears defenders on the way to his first score.
He gave the Giants a 25-13 lead, helping New York to post a preseason victory over Chicago. Below is the video of Hilliman’s 10-yard touchdown jaunt:
