The Eleventh Inductee - # 44 - TOMMY TULL LB
I have had a mention for this guy in the past but not really a nomination. He was so obvious, I figured someone would nominate him sooner or later, I hate to keep doing it myself. The following is what I mean when I say back up your nominatins with the facts. This was an awesome submittal and an awesome player for the Goats. We had some decent teams when he was playing but to watch him was pretty extraordinary. Tommy Tull is the 11th player inducted into the www.gogoats.com HOF.
