William Harry Hull, Jr. (born August 4, 1940) is a former American football defensive end who played in the American Football League.


Hull played college football at Wake Forest and was selected by the National Football League's Chicago Bears in the 3rd round (35th overall) of the 1962 NFL Draft and the AFL's Boston Patriots in the 5th round (38th overall) of the 1962 AFL Draft but did not play for either team. He played only one season professionally with the AFL's Dallas Texans. He intercepted George Blanda late in the first overtime of professional football's longest championship game. In that 1962 American Football League Championship game against the Houston Oilers, Hull's interception allowed the Texans to start the second overtime with two runs by Jack Spikes to move the ball to the Oilers' 25-yard line, and Tommy Brooker kicked a field goal to give the Texans the win, 20 - 17.


Hull was also a collegiate basketball player, and became the first ACC player to ever to start for both the football and basketball team in the same season.[1]


In 1992 Hull was inducted into the WakeForest Athletics Hall of fame.
