Yesterday was the first Sunday of the NFL season. If you’re over 40 years old and were on the couch and thought “I scored 4 touchdowns in one game, I can still play football!”, this may be your lucky day.
At 46 years old, Joe Campbell is still MTSU’s all time leading rusher and he’s getting the itch to get back on the field. Campbell hopes to get an over 40, full pad football league here in Nashville kicked off next spring.
Some of the special rules might include playing only five-minute quarters, no kickoffs, limited blitzes and some other precautions. Campbell has already been told by some local high schools that the league could use their fields.
If you’re or someone you know is interested in playing or sponsoring the league should contact Campbell at firstname.lastname@example.org
