Pocatello to be featured in upcoming Taysom Hill project

December 13, 2018

Pocatello will be featured in an upcoming project by the New Orleans Saints.

The Saints’ digital media team is coming to the Gate City later this week to get footage for a video on Pocatello native Taysom Hill. The Highland High School alumnus is a third-string quarterback on the Saints who has gained fame across the NFL for his diverse skill set.

Hill has contributed as a passer, runner, pass-catcher and special teams stalwart this season, his second in the NFL. His latest eye-catching play was a blocked punt Sunday in the Saints’ 28-14 win at Tampa Bay.

The Saints’ video crew is headed to Highland High School and Idaho State University, among other locations, according to executive director of digital media Doug Tatum.
