The Senior (Citizen) Bowl
By Dan O'Donnell
Mike Flynt, a 59 year-old super-super-super-super-senior football player at Sul Ross State University, more than held his own in the Lobos' 45-42 triple overtime victory over Texas Lutheran on Saturday night.
While the oldest-ever college football player (who was 60) only played one snap at the end of a blowout, Flynt was in on nine snaps and actually figured in the game, playing left end on kicking plays and apparently playing it well.
The Associated Press says that "Flynt is truly part of his Division III team, with expectations to eventually get in at his old position, linebacker. The Lobos have four games left and he expects to play in them all."
Sure, a 59 year-old linebacker would be impressive and all, but come on, Vinny Testaverde is still playing and he's like 87.
