Curtis Pulley (born c. 1986 in Laurens, South Carolina) is a former American football quarterback for the Florida A&M University Rattlers. Pulley used to be a quarterback and wide receiver for the University of Kentucky Wildcats. He was selected as the 2004 Kentucky Mr. Football.

High school years[edit]

College years[edit]

After holding the starting position for the Kentucky Wildcats football coming out of Spring Camp in 2006, QB Andre Woodson beat him for the spot in the fall. For the 2006 season, Pulley served as the backup quarterback, occasional wide receiver, and special teams kick blocker for the Wildcats. He left the team for the spring semester 2007, but later re-enrolled for the Fall. He decided to redshirt the 2007 season and try to regain the starting spot in 2008. He was considered one of the top athletes on the team, and at 6'4 212 lbs, can play either receiver or Quarterback.
