 ALPINE, Texas (AP) -The on-field debut for 59-year-old linebacker Mike Flynt will have to wait another week.
Flynt said Wednesday that doctors have not cleared him to play Saturday in Sul Ross State's home opener against East Texas Baptist. He's now eyeing the game against Howard Payne in Brownwood a week from Saturday for his first action in 37 years.
``I will be ready,'' Flynt said.
Flynt played for Sul Ross in 1969 was a captain in '70, but was kicked off the team for fighting prior to his senior year. He never got over the disappointment, but figured there was nothing he could do about it - until learning this summer that he still had a season of eligibility.
Although he's now a grandfather and a card-carrying member of AARP, Flynt is no ordinary 59-year-old, having remained in terrific shape by working as a college strength and conditioning coach, then selling the Powerbase training system he invented.
He joined Sul Ross for a two-a-day practices this summer and had to earn his way onto the squad. He did, but nagging injuries kept him from traveling to the first two games. He made the traveling squad for last weekend's game against Mary Hardin-Baylor and suited up for the first time since 1970, but never got off the sideline, much to the dismay of fans of both teams.
