Saints Chargers Football

New Orleans Saints quarterback Taysom Hill runs during the second half of a preseason NFL football game against the Los Angeles Chargers Sunday, Aug. 18, 2019, in Carson, Calif.

Pocatello native Taysom Hill, who is among the most popular players on the NFL’s New Orleans Saints and started at quarterback for Brigham Young University, has agreed to partner with the Idaho Potato Commission on a series of social media promotions.

Officials with the IPC, which seeks to grow demand for the Idaho potato brand, say they intend to tie the versatility of their crop with Hill’s versatility as a football player. Hill has played several different positions in the NFL.

Details of the partnership have yet to be finalized.
