Mississippi State left tackle Charles Cross has had a dominant season.
Now, he has another award to prove it.
On Monday, Cross won the Kent Hull Trophy, awarded every year since 2013 to honor “the unsung heroes of a team that toil in obscurity of the line.” The trophy is named after former Mississippi State and Buffalo Bills great Kent Hull.
Cross is the eighth winner of the award and the fifth Mississippi State player to win it. The trophy will be presented Nov. 30 during the C Spire Conerly Trophy banquet in Jackson.
“Kent spent his entire career on the offensive line providing protection and openings for his teammates, and we are proud to highlight the work of those that do that work without fanfare,” Hull’s widow, Kay Hull Kimmel, said in a press release.
Hull played at Mississippi State from 1979 to 1982 and played for the Bills from 1986 to 1996.
