Sul Ross State University

A little while back, Steve told you about 59-year old Mike Flynt who decided he wanted to play college football again after being kicked off the Sul Ross State University team before his senior season.

Flynt made the team on his own merit but unfortunately missed the first two games with an injury. Not surprising considering he is 59 after all.

This Saturday he will make his appearance for the Lobos as they take on their American Southwest Conference foes, the Crusaders from Mary Hardin-Baylor. Gramps will be playing linebacker in the game.

He will not be the oldest player to play in a college football game. That honor goes to 60-year old Edgard Barreto, who played one down in a blowout for Ashland (Ohio) University. He will be the oldest though play regularly.

We will be rooting for you Mike.
