The Final Cockdown: #13 Tyler Hull

Jeremy Brevard-US PRESSWIRE

Punters gon' punt.

Tyler Hull
Redshirt Junior
6'2", 206 lbs.
Mount Airy, NC

Recruitment:
Walk-on from Surry Community College in Dobson, NC

College Career:
Tyler Hull was last year's Kane Whitehurst, the mysterious walk-on who captured the hearts of the fans in fall camp. Unfortunately, he ended up finishing dead last in the SEC in punting average among anyone with 20+ punts.

2013 Outlook:
Hull entered fall camp as the first team punter. His backup is Patrick Fish, who looks like this. This is about the only commentary I could find:


Keep in mind, this is a guy who at one point advocated the Braves trading Craig Kimbrel, so take it with a grain of salt. Still, there have been no major flags raised regarding Hull, so let's all just assume he makes strides in his second year as starting punter.

Trivia:
As a student at Mt. Airy High School, lettered twice as a catcher in baseball. Tyler Hull: an athlete adept in both the dispensing and receiving of balls.

Possible Todd Ellis play-by-play call:
"Gamecocks will line up to punt. The snap, Hull steps forward, and it's a fake! Hull ditches it off to Connor McLaurin, but they've got him wrapped up—and oh my! He laterals it to Hull! Hull high-steps it down the sideline, holding the ball out in front of him like it's wired to blow! The Tigers punt return unit is discombobulated—a now a fan is on the field, riding a unicycle and juggling flaming batons while playing the Benny Hill Theme on kazoo! How can we even hear that? Hull is still going, sprinting towards the goal line, as would-be tacklers fall in piles behind him! Now what? Someone must have leaned on the wrong button, because the Beast Board is now playing the Gangnam Style video at full blast! Befuddled fans seem to be giving into the Pavlovian urge to do the Gangnam Style dance—and now Spurrier's doing it! Meanwhile, Hull's mere yards from the endzone and—no! A massive sinkhole has opened in front of him! He'll have to jump—he'll never make it! Hull leaps to the strains of Korean pop sensation PSY declaring "OPPA GANGNAM STYLE!"—he's midair! Will he get there? NO! He falls short—but wait! He got a hand on the turf, he's clinging tightly—looks like he's trying to get a pendulum motion going, and yes, he's able to swing himself back up onto the field, and finally, he crosses the goal line! TOUCHDOWN, GAMECOCKS! Folks, I think it's fair to say that ALL HULL HAS BROKEN LOOSE!"
