08:20 AM ET 09.09 | With the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks approaching, you may hear more about San Diego's JP Bolwahnn. Shortly after he crosses the goal line for the first time, the ball cradled in his arm, the University of San Diego running back will turn toward the American flag and salute. The gesture will be for Petty Officer Danny Dietz, killed six years ago in a firefight with Taliban guerrillas. It will be for Lt. Cmdr. Jonas Kelsall and Chief Petty Officer Robert James Reeves, who died last month when their helicopter was shot down in Afghanistan. And it will be for all the other Navy SEALs still fighting abroad. Bolwahnn was once a member of the special operations force, attaining the rank of Special Operator 1st Class.

Well I'm 33. I wonder if I have any eligibility left.

I could go to college and have eligibility? I could get some of that money everyone is talking about.

On another note...this guy runs thru the line and anyone trying to tackle him gets his head ripped off....

Of course it would have to be a D1 school....hmmmmm, who is desperate enough to give a full-ride to a 6# year old guy with arthritis, rather large middle torso and bad knees?

Hmmmm....who in the 12PAC needs a benchwarmer?????

NFL scouts will be too scared to tell him he's too old to draft.

Wasn't there some guy in a small Texas college who was 40 or 50 that played? LB I think...

LOL...I can see that.

AD John..."Well John, we would like to give you a full 4-year scholarship to attend our school and play football"

Player John..."I accept and will sign my LOI...where's the tattos?"

Coach John... "John, we will play you at <x position> and you will only be substituted when you want"

This could go on and on....

Hopefully, the refs won't throw a flag.
