Who is Dave Hill?

David Harris Hill is a former college and professional American football player.

Hill was born in Lanett, Alabama and attended Lanett High School. He graduated in 1958 and attended Auburn University along with fellow Lanett High School alumnus, Bobby Hunt. Hunt played quarterback and defensive back while Hill played offensive and defensive line.

A fourth-round draft choice in 1963 for the American Football League's Kansas City Chiefs and wearing wore jersey number 73, Hill went on to play 149 games in all with the Chiefs, the fourth most ever by a Kansas City offensive lineman. At one point, he did not miss a game for nine straight seasons.

He started for the Chiefs at right tackle in Super Bowl I and Super Bowl IV, earning two AFL Championship rings and a World Championship ring, and playing in the first and last World Championships between the champions of the AFL and the NFL. In Super Bowl IV, he handled well one of the best defensive ends of that era, Carl Eller, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, as the Chiefs rushed for 151 yards that day, for their only Super Bowl title to date.
