Colts’ T.Y. Hilton Avoiding Fast Food, in Best Shape of Life

HOUSTON, TX - NOVEMBER 05: T.Y. Hilton /

Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton is preparing for another Pro Bowl year this offseason by reconfiguring his diet.

The Colts’ wide receiver depth chart is pretty thin right now, but they still have one of the best playmakers in the league in T.Y. Hilton.

Hilton is looking to get even better this offseason as he told the Indianapolis Star’s Zak Keefer that he’s cutting fast food out of his diet to enter the 2018 season in the “best shape of his life.”

The Colts added a legendary new director of sports performance to the staff in Rusty Jones. Jones has worked in the NFL for nearly 30 years, and he’s won multiple awards during his career including the NFL’s strength and conditioning Lifetime Achievement award and the National Professional Strength and Conditioning Coach of the Year.

Jones has been working closely with T.Y. Hilton on his new diet and will continue to improve Hilton’s strength and conditioning this offseason.

It speaks to Hilton’s competitive fire that he’s still looking for new ways to get better after he’s made four straight Pro Bowls.

T.Y. is also mentioned that he’s excited to work with new head coach Frank Reich, and hopefully his franchise quarterback will be healthy in 2018.

Hilton has remained productive with backup quarterbacks and an ancient offensive scheme over the past few years, so his ceiling is incredibly high next season as the Colts are expected to improve in both of those areas.

Hopefully the Colts can find some wide receiver talent in the draft to take the pressure off of Hilton, but T.Y. is ready to carry a large offensive load thanks to his new diet plan.
