South Carolina football: 94-year-old alumni scores a touchdown

Lou Sossamon was a linebacker and center for the Gamecocks in the early 40s and holds the distinct honor of being the first-ever Gamecock to be named an All-American. He last scored a touchdown in 2016.

That's right, 2016.

South Carolina's spring game traditions include an annual alumni game, and thanks to some kind blockers - and a relenting defense - the 94-year-old legend scored a touchdown on April 9, 2016.

The Gamecocks return to the field on Sept. 1. However, they haven't said whether Sossamon will be suiting up.
