While most 59-year olds are gearing up for retirement, Mike Flynt is getting ready to hit the field as a player for Sul Ross State Universitys Division III football team.
Flynt earned his spot on the college squad after a 37-year hiatus from football, and hes become an inspiration to the team due to his fitness and morale-boosting determination.
Head coach Steve Wright calls Flynt one of the strongest players, and adds, He gives many of the players hope, and inspires them to not take no for an answer. I think we all have a lot to learn from Mike.
And while the hype surrounding Flynt would make a marvelous movie, Wright wants to keep the focus on the field.
He says, I cant have the players thinking about wholl play them in the movie, though Im sure they already do.
