Yahoo Sports: 61 Year Old Vietnam vet makes college football team

61-year-old Vietnam vet makes the cut as a small-college kicker - Dr. Saturday - NCAAF*Blog - Yahoo! Sports


Quote:
At an age when many start thinking about retirement, Alan Moore is restarting his football career.

Moore, a 61 year-old Vietnam veteran, will kick this fall for Faulkner University, a small Christian school in Montgomery, Ala., 43 years after his initial college career was cut short by Vietnam. When he takes the field against Ave Maria on Sept. 10, Moore will be the oldest player ever to take the field for a four-year university.

Kudos to this guy!

Wow, that's awesome. Even to be a kicker at age 61 is impressive.

I'm guessing this was a PR move and he won't kick the ball once.
