Mississippi State’s Kylin Hill awarded proclamation for inspiring change with new state flag


JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – A Mississippi State University student-athlete was honored for his fight for change Wednesday at the Hinds County Chancery Court.

Kylin Hill, a junior and running back for the MSU football team, was given the proclamation by the Hinds County Board of Supervisors for his efforts in changing the state flag in 2020.

In a now viral tweet, Hill said, “Either change the flag or I won’t be representing this state anymore.”

The new state flag was approved by voters in a special election in November 2020.
