Jim Lee Hunt

Jim Lee Hunt played for the Patriots from 1960-71. Nicknamed "Earthquake," Hunt played in 141 games at defensive tackle. He was voted to four AFL All-Star games and named "best pass rushing tackle in the AFL" by AFL scouts in 1967. Hunt possessed great speed for a man of his size, once intercepting a pass and out-running two running backs for a 79-yard touchdown return. An award for the best Patriots lineman was named in his honor and John Hannah won it in 1981. In 1993, Hunt was inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame.
