89-year-old former Jayhawk scores in Kansas alumni football game
Kansas Jayhawks football team held a flag football game for alumni letterman on Saturday as part of the team's spring game festivities, and one former two-way player showed he still has what it takes with a touchdown catch on the final play.
89-year-old Bryan Sperry scored on the game's final play thanks to some excellent blocking from his teammates and a few sharp cuts.
Sperry played for the team from 1946-48 after serving in World War II and even played in the 1948 Orange Bowl, according to Yahoo Sports.
The alumni game star told KUsports.com that he had to talk his way onto the field, but had a blast once he got out there.
