MSU’s Ring of Honor will add Pontotoc’s Hull

By NEMS Daily Journal

The late Kent Hull, who anchored Mississippi State’s offensive line for four years, will become part of the Ring of Honor at Davis Wade Stadium.
The Pontotoc native, who died last year at age 50, will be honored prior to the Bulldogs’ game against Auburn on Sept. 8. His family will take part in the ceremony.
Hull played for MSU from 1979-82, starting as a freshman and leading the Bulldogs to a pair of winning seasons and an upset of No. 1 Alabama in 1980.
He spent 11 seasons in the NFL, making three Pro Bowls and helping the Buffalo Bills make four consecutive Super Bowl appearances.
Hull will be the fifth member of MSU’s Ring of Honor, joining former players Johnie Cooks, D.D. Lewis and Jackie Parker, and former announcer Jack Cristil.
