This man played college football at Kansas State. He served in World War II. He played in the 1948 Orange Bowl. And now at age 89, he’s still scoring touchdowns.

Bryan Sperry was playing at an alumni flag football game at Kansas State when he got the football at the 37-yard line, according to the Bleacher Report. He started running, albeit slowly, and made it all the way to the end zone.

Fair warning: the group hug with his teammates after he scores and the uplifting music in the video may make you tear up.
