Jerel Hill, Former Hinds CC Athlete, Pens E-book, Preps For 2016 Olympics
Release Date: 9/26/2014
Hinds Community College

RAYMOND – Jerel Hill, a Vicksburg native and former All-American men’s track and field student-athlete and coach at Hinds Community College, has written an e-book, “Never Give Up on Your Dreams: My Journey of Faith,” that is now available on his personal website, www.jerelhill.com, for $0.99.

The book provides an in-depth look at Hill's journey of faith and demonstrates how stepping out on faith can equal a dream realized. This is not a "rags-to-riches" story but is an example that never giving up is always the best option when one has nothing to lose.

The allocated funds from the autobiography about Hill’s journey of faith will go toward his training expenses in his aim to make Team USA and compete at the 2015 World Championships in Beijing, China, and the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Hill, who will now train in Baton Rouge, left Hinds and transferred to Louisiana State University, where he lettered for the Tigers in 2009 and 2010, setting personal bests of 10.22 in the 100-meter dash and 20.90 in the 200-meter dash during his senior season.
