Josh Hill signs with Carlstad Crusaders in Sweden

Former Merrimack defensive lineman Josh Hill has signed with the Carlstad Crusaders in Sweden, the same league where former Merrimack quarterback Joe Clancy played a few years ago.

“I have done some research on the Crusaders,” Hill told earlier this week. “They look to be a very successful team and I have talked to some former players who spoke of them very highly and really enjoyed their time there. I talked to one of my friends who I played with in college and he played football in Sweden he says it is very good football and he loved every minute of it. The country of Sweden is a beautiful place. I am very excited and to be able to live in Sweden for the next few months.”

Hill spent this past season coaching at Anna Maria College in Paxton, Mass. Hill was a decorated lineman for the Warriors, leading the NE10 in sacks in the 2016 season while being awarded All-Conference honors for both the 2015 and 2016 seasons; in 2016 he was recognized as an All-Super Region athlete.

“After college I was being looked at by the NFL,” Hill said. “Things did not work out with that, so I started to coach at a college. I started to really miss playing and then coach Gere [Carlstad head coach] reached out to me and and I was very excited to have an opportunity to play again with an amazing organization.”
