#23 Kent Hull

Kent Hull was a legend at Mississippi State. He was such a great offensive lineman, when the state of Mississippi decided to start honoring the best lineman in the state, the award was named after him. Hull started his professional career with the New Jersey Generals of the USFL before joining the Buffalo Bills in 1986 and was an immediate starter. Hull would have a long and productive career that included four consecutive appearances in the Super Bowl from 1990 until 1993. Sadly, Hull passed away at the very young age of 50 in 2011. He died from a gastrointestinal bleed that stemmed from chronic liver disease.
