Even as an eighth-grader on a first-time Section VI championship lacrosse program, Owen Hill was noticeable. He wasn't the straw that stirred the drink on that historic Akron team. That honor belonged to seniors Larson Sundown and Chaunce Hill, Owen's brother. Yet the younger Hill's contributions were hard to ignore.
