ABC 7's Linda Carson and Millionaires Michael Lynch

SARASOTA, Fla. - You know those old sayings...’it's never too late’...’never give up.’ Well a man in Sarasota has proved it's true. Michael Lynch is 64 years old. He's accomplished a lot in his life, but the deep longing to play football once again would just never go away. So he decided to give it one more shot. Semi-pro football is hard-nosed, hard hitting, and players are trying to get noticed by college or pro scouts. Michael Lynch plays on the semi-pro Sarasota Millionaires the same team former Sarasota High football star Michael Ford plays on. "He just tried out for the Bucs two weeks ago, and they think they will ask him back to camp this coming summer," says Lynch. This is the first time Lynch has played football in 38 years. "The last time I played football? When I played semi-pro on Long Island in ‘75 and ’76." His love for football started at Bayshore High School in Long Island. "My senior year I had a very good year at safety and wide receiver. I had the good pleasure of walking on at East Carolina University." He even got to know Joe Namath.
