"I feel like I’m married to Peter Pan" ~ Eileen Flynt

Here’s a story about a man named Mike Flynt who got kicked off his college football team for fighting and is now coming back onto the team – 37 years later! Yes, you read that right. He’s 59 years old and he’s made it back onto the team. He’ll be playing college football at 59 years old.

There’s a myth in youth ministry that you grow out of it. That eventually, you’re just too old to keep up with students. That after so many years, you just can’t relate to kids anymore. But if a registered member of the AARP can play college football…

Will he get hurt? Maybe. So do the young guys.
Has he worked hard to stay in shape? Obviously.
But what a story!
