Mike Flynt at 59 Years Old To Play College Football For Su Ross State. New Meaning of College Senior? Update 9-16-07

Mike Flynt at age 59 has returned to Sul Ross State this month, 37 years after he left college. He is elgible for Medicare in six years. On Wednesday, he made the Division III college team's roster. He could play as soon as Sept. 1. Flynt is giving new meaning to being a college senior. Flynt is a card-carrying member of AARP who is a grandfather. (He is eight years older than his coach.) Flynt has made a living out of physical fitness. He has been a conditioning coach at Nebraska, Oregon and Texas A&M. For the last several years, he has been selling the "Powerbase training system" that he invented. With Flynt's youngest child starting at the University of Tennessee, he and his wife Eileen have moved to this remote patch of West Texas so Flynt can play ball and inspire others.When he suits up, he will become the oldest player in college football history.
9-16-07: While Flynt dressed for the teams third game, due to pulled muscles, he still has yet to play in a game. He should play soon.

Now as we break training camp, finally a story that warms the heart of the old coach. Never too old to try!

Maybe I will make a come back, legal pub. Can you see if I have any elgibility left?

Hey Pubmeister,

This is really inspiring....why don't you tape those ankles of yours and go back to school studying something and use up that eligibility. Maybe you could suit up for someone?

Pubmeister probably has a full four years of eligibility available!

Geez, so maybe I should continue with my underwater basketweaving course. . .

Yes, Ms. C. It is never too late. I think I may not be able to come back, but no reason why you should not be able to return to peak form.

Ms. C. and Pubmeister,

What do you think my chances are of getting back in college and being selected to some glamorous sorority? If I did, would I have a chance at getting a date with a good looking coed like Flynt?
