Professional Football Player. For eleven seasons (1986 to 1996), he played at the center position in the National Football League with the Buffalo Bills. Born James Kent Hull, he attended Greenwood High School (Mississippi) where he excelled in basketball, as well as football and distinguished himself at Mississippi State University as the Bulldogs' starting center on their football squad. Upon graduation, Hull's professional career began when he was signed by the New Jersey Generals of the United States Football League and remained with them for three seasons (1983 to 1985), prior to the league's folding in 1986. He would sign with the Bills just before the start of the 1986 season and take over the starting center position when veteran Tim Vogler suffered an injury which limited his playing time. That season also saw the beginning of what would become a Hall of Fame career for quarterback Jim Kelly who was also a new arrival from the USFL. Over the next eleven seasons, Kelly and Hull led a highly-effective, no-huddle, hurry-up Buffalo offense, devised by coach Marv Levy and offensive coordinator Ted Marchibroda, known as "K-Gun", which resulted in four consecutive Super Bowl appearances (XXV in 1991, XXVI in 1992, XXVII in 1993 and XXVIII in 1994). During the course of his career, Hull earned Pro-Bowl honors three-times (1988 to 1990) and First-Team All-Pro status twice (1990 to 1991). Following his football career, he worked in farming. He was inducted into the Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame in 1997, was recipient of the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Distinguished Service Award in 2001 and was named to the Bills Wall of Fame in 2002. (bio by: C.S.)
