Terrell Owens catches touchdown in Fan Controlled Football League game at 48-years-old
Terrell Owens shocked the football world when he announced that he would be joining the Fan Controlled Football League earlier this month to play for the Zappers.
This past weekend, despite it being over 12 years since he played his last NFL game, Owens pulled in an 11-yard touchdown during the Zapppers’ game against the Shoulda Been Stars.
Terrell Owens didn’t look 48-years-old at all, pulling in a catch while being double-teamed.
I’m not going to lie, the competition in this game likely isn’t great in the slightest. Still, seeing TO being able to pull this off at this age is impressive. It has been 26 years since his career began and over four years since he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
I honestly would take 48-year-old Owens over Jalen Reagor or J.J. Arcega-Whiteside in a heartbeat. Last year, TO raced Tyreek Hill and managed to keep pace with him.
The Fan Controlled Football League is an interesting concept, with teams playing 7-on-7, while fans can make almost all key decisions for the team on and off the field.
Owens has been vocal about wanting to continue playing over the last few years, and he proved last night that he still has it. Over the last few years, the Hall of Famer has tried to join the CFL alongside a professional flag football league.
One of his teammates in the FCF is former Heisman winner Johnny Manziel. Unfortunately, Manziel didn’t play this weekend due to unknown reasons. The Zappers have five games remaining this season, and hopefully, Owens will be able to continue this level of production.
