Hall’s senior season was cut short because of injury, but he caught 23 passes for 300 yards and three touchdowns, including a 70-yard score. He also saw time on defense and helped the Thunderbirds to the second round of the Class A playoffs. Hall received honorable-mention all-state accolades from the Lincoln Journal Star for his efforts.
Hall posted big numbers as both a junior and senior for Coach Michael Huffman. As a junior, Hall caught 62 passes for 974 yards and 11 touchdowns, averaging 15.7 yards per catch.
