Winston Hill (born 1941) was an American college and professional football player. An offensive tackle from Texas Southern University, he started with New York’s American Football League franchise in the same year that they became the New York Jets, and went on to record the tenth-longest string of starts in pro football history, 174. He was an American Football League All-Star in 1964, 1967,1968 and 1969, and a Pro Bowl selection in 1970, 1971, 1972 and 1973.
Hill was an overpowering blocker who opened gaping holes for Matt Snell in the Third AFL-NFL World Championship game. He was selected to the second-team All-time All-American Football League Team and is a member of the Texas Southern Sports Hall of Fame, the New York Jets All-Time team, and the American Football League Hall of Fame. Mr. Hill hails from Gladewater, Tx. where his father, the late Garfield Hill, served as principal of Weldon High School.
