59-year-old college player an inspiration

By Rick Morris

Mike Flynt is a physical marvel, but more than that, he is an example to people everywhere about the power of human will.

37 years after missing his senior season of college football, he decided to do something about it. In a completely different era of football, he has returned. As somebody who had dedicated his life to physical fitness, he was uniquely qualified to attempt this task, but it's still unbelievable that a man his age could blend in athletically with players young enough to be his grandchildren. Sports movies get made at the drop of a hat these days, so it's not saying much, but this story needs to be told on the big screen.
