In our Thursday night spotlight on the Jets Ring of Honor members, we take a look at an offensive lineman that was a staple in the 1960s and 1970s. Spotlight tonight on OT Winston Hill.

Hill played his college career at Texas Southern, and was actually drafted by the Baltimore Colts in 1963, but in an era when the AFL and NFL played tug of war for players, Winston Hill signed with the AFL team that was the Titans and became the New York Jets.

Starting at left offensive tackle, what we now know the value of thanks to the movie “The Blindside”, Hill went on to make 174 consecutive starts, the 10th longest streak in pro football history.

Winston Hill played a large part in the Super Bowl III victory, where Matt Snell ran for 121 yards, and a great deal of that came on Hill’s side of the line.
