WALESKA, Ga. — Billy Hall has played a lot of college football here. But the fifth-year senior has seldom had a bigger individual day than he did on Saturday.
Hall accounted for six of Reinhardt’s seven touchdowns in a 49-35 win over Bluefield in conference play. The former Scott High standout was masterful through the air, completing 13 of 15 passes and amassing four touchdowns. He also rushed for two more touchdowns.
In fact, Hall was a part of all of Reinhardt’s offensive touchdowns. The Eagles’ only other score was on a first quarter scoop-and-score by the defense. And what made it even more remarkable was that all six of Hall’s touchdowns came in the first half.
Hall opened Reinhardt’s scoring with a 22-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. Later in the first quarter, he completed a 28-yard pass to Dylan Kelly to give the Eagles a 21-6 lead.
Navarie Solomon was on the receiving end of a 40-yard touchdown pass from Hall midway through the second quarter, as Reinhardt expanded its lead to 28-13. Just two minutes later, Hall scored on a three-yard run to make it 35-13.
Hall connected with Solomon again before the half, and the 15-yard touchdown pass made it 42-13.
But Hall wasn’t finished. Keyovione Whitlock returned an interception 65 yards to the Bluefield 8-yard-line. And, with just 22 seconds left in the first half, Hall connected with Terrance Roberts on a touchdown pass to make it 49-13 at the intermission.
Hall finished 13 of 15 through the air for 224 yards and four touchdowns. On the ground, Hall had 10 carries for 53 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
Hall’s pass efficiency rating for the game was a whopping 300.1.
For the season, Hall has completed 53 of 94 passes for 710 yards and eight touchdowns.
Also on Saturday, Hall recorded his 200th career completion and surpassed 3,000 career passing yards. He has thrown for 33 touchdowns with nine interceptions in two and a half seasons at Reinhardt.
