SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – A 10-year-old cancer survivor gave New Orleans Saints quarterback Taysom Hill an impressive introduction before speaking at a company event.

In a video shared by Hill on social media, Graham Schanz stood on stage wearing a No. 7 black and gold Saints jersey and introduced the quarterback to the crowd in a fashion any professional broadcaster would be proud of.

“For the millions watching around the world, it’s Taysom time,” Schanz said. “The pride of Pocatello, Idaho — former BYU Cougar — Taysom Hill!”

“Of all the introductions I’ve received, last night may have been my all-time favorite. 10 year-old cancer survivor Graham Schanz came up with this introduction all on his own, and nailed it with the delivery. This kid definitely has a future in announcing! Thanks to @aldersalesforce for having me!”

About Taysom Hill

Prior to his time in the NFL, Hill played for BYU from 2012-2016.

After his college career, he signed a free agent deal with the Green Bay Packers following the 2016 NFL Draft. Hill was released before the start of his rookie season and picked up off of waivers by New Orleans.

He has played all four seasons of his career with the Saints.

Last season, Hill played in 17 games for the Saints, including four starts at quarterback during the regular season.

As the starting QB, Hill led New Orleans to a 3-1 record.

He threw for 928 yards, four touchdowns, and two interceptions with a 72.7 completion rate.

In addition to passing, Hill had 87 carries for 457 yards and eight touchdowns.

This offseason, New Orleans signed Hill to a restructured deal worth a reported $140 million over four years. Each year of the contract is reportedly voidable.

Saints head coach Sean Payton recently stated that Hill would compete with Jameis Winston for New Orleans’ starting quarterback job in 2021.
