From the far away land of Florida, Cori Hill loves his position as a center back for all the right reasons. With a reputation for strong headers, big tackles, and long throws, Cori brings strength and endurance to the defensive line with his dedication to getting the job done no matter what stands in his way.
Cori’s first memories of the game go back to his fourth birthday when he received a soccer ball as a gift. What started as playing in the yard for fun would develop into a major passion in Cori’s life, leading him to Duluth FC. Cori’s family has always been his biggest support system, as his parents did anything needed to make sure Cori could pursue his passion as a soccer player.
Cori’s first live match was quite the memorable one, as he attended a friendly between Barcelona and Chivas at the Hard Rock Stadium (then called the Sun Life Stadium) in Miami Gardens, Florida. The game would become best known for Chivas’ dominate second half performance which gave them the win against the Catalan giants.
As a staunch Liverpool supporter, Cori’s idol has always been the Reds’ legendary defender Jamie Carragher, who won the FA Cup, League Cup, UEFA Cup (Europa League) and the Champions League during his time at the club.
