59-year-old college football player.

Sul-Ross-State-sealMike Flynt’s biggest regret was getting kicked off his college football team in his senior year -37 years ago. So he checked his eligibility and joined the team once again at Sul Ross State in Texas! He is eight years older than his coach, and has children older than his teammates.

"I told him he's an idiot," said Jerry Larned, who coached Flynt at Sul Ross in 1969 and counseled him at the start of his comeback. "I said, 'Gosh, dang, Mike, you're not 20 years old any more. You're liable to cripple yourself.' He understands all of that. But he has a burning desire to play. ... He is in great physical condition. He still runs a 5-flat 40 and bench presses I-don't-know-what. He's a specimen for 59 years old.”


Flynt’s position is still undetermined, but he could be on the field as early as September first. Link -via College Humor
