I recently tried out for a local semi-pro football team in Buffalo, NY and will be playing middle linebacker. I am the second oldest person on the team at 36 (37 in July)
This has been a blast so far, I last played football in college in 1992 as a running back at Carson-Newman. Man have I lost some athletic speed and a step or two, but it is to be expected. After my first practice of hitting, I was in so much pain, but happy nonetheless. I just want one season of this and then I can hang up the cleats and cheer from the sideline. Our first game is June 20th, and I will keep a post of how we do.
