Frank Solich was once a legendary running back at Nebraska, and here's video proof that he's still got it


Most of you probably don't realize it, but back in the mid-60's Frank Solich was a standout fullback at Nebraska, where he eventually earned the nickname "Fearless Frankie". By his senior year he was an all conference selection and captain, and eventually was inducted into the Nebraska Football Hall of Fame in 1992.

Long story short, the man could play.

At a recent practice, Solich's playing instincts kicked into full gear when an Ohio center rifled a snap over the quarterback's head. Solich plucked it out of the air and...well the rest (a juke, lowering the shoulder, and a celebratory spike) is proof that the 69 year old still has some gas left in the old tank.
