SB Nation's Mid American Conference affiliate Hustle Belt is counting down the top 68 players to watch in the Mid American Conference in 2013.

It must be July.

Ranked No. 38 on the list is Eastern Michigan junior running back Bronson Hill who led the Eagles in rushing as a sophomore with 920 yards and six touchdowns and also had 12 receptions for 208 yards and another score. Impressive, considering Hill wasn't in the starting lineup until the sixth game of the season.

It's hard to get a gauge on a player in just a little more than half of a season, but Hill really only needed his 283 yard, four touchdown performance against Toledo to make the list.
