Perhaps one of the most fun of the 1990s were watching the Buffalo Bills. With quarterback Jim Kelly and running back Therman “Thermal” Thomas, the team had an electric offense if not at times laughable due to the let’s forget multiple winless Super Bowl appearances. But the team was always a thrill and it should come as no surprise that at the center of of it all, was a great man. A man named Kent Hull who passed away today at the age of 50.
He was a “man of great courage and character.” – Hall of Fame Quarterback Jim Kelly, revealing the nature of his lost friend Kent Hull
Kent Hull served as center under the command of Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly. Hull started his major career at Mississippi State, one of the greatest colleges in this nation, if I must so say myself.
In Kent Hull’s career, he was selected for the Pro Bowl three times in his eleven seasons with the Buffalo Bills. Hull’s name still stands on The Wilson Stadium’s hall of fame.
News of the Kent Hull death has rightfully hit hard, for fans, friends and former teammates. Running back Thurman Thomas had this to say: “We have suffered a tremendous loss. Kent was a teammate, big brother and best friend. My heart breaks for His amazing family. My heart breaks period. He will be a best friend and in my heart forever.”
“We have suffered a tremendous loss,” Bills Hall of Fame running back Thurman Thomas wrote in an email to The Associated Press. “Kent was a teammate, big brother and best friend. My heart breaks for His amazing family. My heart breaks period. He will be a best friend and in my heart forever.”
