Windham High School recently celebrated the induction of Jody Hill into its Athletic Hall of Fame.

Hill, who is a 1975 graduate of Windham, was recognized for his achievements on the basketball court.

Playing under head coach Ron Kamada, Hill helped guide the Bombers to a 58-9 record during his career. Hill was part of three sectional championships and two district championships.

He joins the Hall of Fame alongside former teammates Rob Garrett, Dave Flegal, Ted McDivitt, Barry Lyons, Larry Jett, Dave Jett and Jim Christopher.

Hill was twice voted First Team All-Portage County League and was known as an all-around player that could shoot, rebound and defend. In his senior season, Hill averaged 19.2 points per game, which allowed him to become the first-ever Windham player to receive First Team All-Ohio honors.

Hill also played football for the Bombers and was a member of the school's band, playing the trumpet. He went on to earn his Bachelor's degree from Malone University and his Master's degree from Trinity Theological Seminary, where he is currently completing his Doctorate in biblical counseling.

He is the pastor of the Deerfield Evangelical Friends Church and is married to Ann (Ehrenburg) Hill (Windham Class of 1973). Hill has four daughters and one son.
