Will never forget the double pass from Doering to Hill to set up the game winning TD vs Alabama. Great play call and execution. 90s Gators were the best! RIP Aubrey Hill

I still remember the exact day I met #AubreyHill 5yrs ago. His genuineness & welcoming spirit towards me was something I NEVER FORGOT. So much that every time I saw him on a sideline or at an event I, like everyone else gravitated to him… An amazing human being gone to soon🙏🏾 pic.twitter.com/rHOFKM76HL

I remember when Aubrey Hill was listed as a TE in the #gameday program but he was a WR 🙂 He was my favorite player and fun to watch in the mid 90s, so consistent and reliable on offense. Sad to hear this. RIP @CoachA_Hill @GatorsFB
