Dinwiddie (VA) junior Chris Hall has performed well in his first season as the Generals starting signal caller. The 6-4, 225-pound Hall, whose play is starting to generate FBS attention, has led the Generals to a 3-1 record heading into tonight’s match-up against Meadowbrook (Richmond, VA).

Through four games, Hall has completed 63 of 124 passes for 1,044 yards with 11 touchdown passes and five interceptions. In addition, he has 41 carries for 279 yards and two touchdowns.

“I’m real pleased with him,” Generals head coach Billy Mills said. “He is still making some mistakes in progression reads, but he knows what they are. You can know all you want, but until you have people trying to knock you’re head off, knowing is not enough. He throws the ball well. He runs the ball well. We haven’t given up one sack yet and it’s not because our offensive line is great. Chris has done a great job of scrambling. He is making some things happen.”

Coach Mills says that Hall has shown excellent work ethic in the physical and mental areas of the game.

“He is a great student of the game,” Mills said. “He wouldn’t be able to do as well as he has done so far if he wasn’t. He has about a 50-percent completion rate, but we’ve had a lot of drops.”

Physically, Hall has an impressive skill-set. If he puts it all together, do not be surprised if he draws FBS scholarship offers before his Dinwiddie career is over.

“I don’t know if he’ll be a quarterback in college, but he can play something,” said Mills, who used Hall at running back and wide receiver in 2008. “He wants to play quarterback and I think he can. We run the option with him. He throws on the run. He is a good pocket passer. At the end of the half in one of our games, he threw the ball from our own end zone to the opposite 25. We were just taking a shot there. He has a very strong arm.”

Virginia Tech and Virginia are both expressing interest in Hall, who has visited Virginia several times this year and will head to Tech tomorrow for the Boston College game.
