After retiring in 2007 he got the urge to try to return to college basketball at age 73 to finish his career. Incredibly, he made the team at Roane State College, Harriman, Tn., and went on to play in seven games and scored in three, setting several world records. He was featured on numerous national TV shows and was highlighted in hundreds of newspapers and magazines and Ripley‘s Believe It Or Not. He has signed with a Hollywood producer to do a movie based on his life.
