Alan Moore, a 61-year-old Vietnam veteran and grandfather of five, became the oldest player ever to get in a college football game when he kicked an extra point for NAIA Faulkner in its season opener.
Moore wore a square-toe shoe and kicked old-school style, not soccer style trends that were popular when he first played college football in the late 60s. He gave Faulkner a 25-0 lead early in the second half Saturday en route to a 41-19 win over Ave Maria, located in southwest Florida and playing its first game ever.
Players one-third his age swarmed Moore as he jogged off the field smiling. Gray-bearded and tanned, Moore swapped high fives and fist bumps with teammates.
