The History of the Harlon Hill Trophy
    
The Harlon Hill Trophy is 30 inches tall (2 1/2 feet) and weighs 63 pounds.  The football on top is a life-size replica of an actual game football and sits on a solid walnut base.  The approximate value of the trophy is $2,300.  It was created by Herff Jones, Inc. of Indianapolis, Ind., which also makes such notable awards as the Heisman Trophy and the Congressional Medal of Honor.  Each year's winner of the Hill Trophy is awarded a trophy to keep.  The original Hill Trophy remains on display in the Shoals year-round and bears the names of each year's recipient.  The award was first presented in 1986.
