Tunsil wins Hull Trophy

OXFORD – Ole Miss tackle Laremy Tunsil has won the Hull Trophy which goes to Mississippi’s top offensive lineman.

Tunsil has anchored the left side of the Rebels’ line for two years.

He’s played through injuries to his right shoulder and biceps the last half of this season and sat out much of the Rebels’ 30-0 loss at Arkansas last Saturday.

A five-star recruit in the class of 2013, Tunsil was named a mid-season All-American earlier this season by ESPN, The Sporting News and Phil Steele.

“Laremy is the most athletic offensive lineman I have ever coached,” said Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze.

Freeze coached former Ole Miss All-American Michael Oher when Oher was in high school at Briarcrest Christian in Memphis.

The trophy is named for the late Kent Hull, the former Mississippi State offensive lineman, who played in four Super Bowls with the Buffalo Bills.

The winner is chosen by a panel of former college and NFL coaches, scouts and former college players.
