Unfortunately, when it comes to growing old, there is nothing we can truly do. Sure, there is dye to cover up gray hair and cream to help with wrinkles, but at the end of the day, aging is part of life. But, for a select few, growing older is just another chance to prove just how totally awesome they are.
Yes, we are talking about professional athletes who not only owned their respective sports in their heyday but have come out on top of the aging game. From David Beckham to Michael Irvin, these photos prove that some professional athletes don’t age like the rest of us.
Steve Young Still Looks Like A Star QB
For 15 seasons, Steve Young played in the National Football League as a quarterback, primarily for the San Francisco 49ers. And while the former Super Bowl champion and Hall of Famer is no longer a young QB setting passing records, in the right lighting, he almost looks the same!
After retiring from professional football at the end of the 1999 season, Young traded in his pads and helmet for a headset, becoming a sports analyst for ESPN. As a man in the latter half of his 50s, he’s not looking too shabby as he spews off the pre- and post-game show facts on TV!
