Michael Lynch is living proof that some dreams never die.
In March 2018, Lynch, a part-time resident of Frisco, became a Guinness World Records holder as the oldest football player in American history when he suited up at age 68 and scored a touchdown for the South Florida Gladiators in his final of four seasons playing semi-professional football.
“I only thought I would play for the one year. We had a good team (the first year), got eliminated in the playoffs. (I said) that was it, I was done,” Lynch, who played his first season with the Sarasota Millionaires, said. “I was banged up, but said that was enough.”
