This 61-Year-Old Man Is About to Become the Oldest Person to Ever Play College Football

"You're so old, the candles on your birthday cake raised the Earth's temperature by three degrees!"

"You're so old, you sat next to Jesus in school!"

"You're so old, your birth certificate is expired!"

Those are just a few of the jokes Alan Moore better get used to hearing. Moore is a 61-year-old placekicker who earned a spot on the Faulkner College football team this fall and will become the oldest person to ever play college football when he turns 62 later this year. After playing college ball back in 1968 (!) at a community college in Mississippi, he had his career cut short due to the Vietnam War. So now, he's hoping to finish things off the right way by joining the Faulkner family. "It is not about me, it is about we," says Moore, who is also taking a bunch of college courses and living at a dorm at Faulkner (lucky guy!). "And I know I can motivate kids."

Quick: Go and tell your grandpa he's a slacker. 'Cause this old-ass man is putting him to shame right now. [via Off The Bench]
