In an interview with MileSplit Minnesota back in 2019, Hull said "To young football players, I would say do track as early as you can. Being able to run fast and efficiently is extremely important to being a good football player, so if you can learn it now, you're ahead of the game."

Seems like that advice has paid off for Hull as he is off to start his NFL career with the Indianapolis Colts. We wish Hull the best of luck as he starts the next stage of his life.
