Joe Thomas Sr. rushed for three yards on a historic handoff for South Carolina State.

The 55-year-old, whose son plays linebacker for the Green Bay Packers, became the oldest player to ever participate in an NCAA Division I game.

Thomas has been with the team for years, but he never suited up until Saturday, when the Bulldogs took senior day to a new level by giving him a memorable carry.
