Joe Thomas Sr. Becomes Oldest Divison I Player

The 55-year-old dad of an NFL player recently made history on the football field. Joe Thomas Sr. played as a running back this weekend for SC State at the tender age of 55.

USA Today reports:

Joe Thomas Sr. made college football history by appearing as a running back for South Carolina State.

Thomas at the age of 55 is believed to be the oldest player to participate in a Division I football game. The father of Green Bay Packers linebacker Joe Thomas Jr., practiced with the team with his son and then stayed on the past two seasons with the hope of find his way into a game.

His dream was realized in the first quarter on senior day against Savannah State when he carried for three yards.
