Norwalk’s Krost A 74-Year-Old Quarterback Trying To Get To The Super Bowl

NORWALK — Lee Krost had his first flirtation with the NFL 50 years ago. He was a semi-professional player with the Richmond Vikings when he was given a tryout by the Baltimore Colts.

Only one thing stood in his way.

“They had this young little skinny guy. His name was Unitas,” said Krost with a smile, referring to Hall of Fame quarterback Johnny Unitas.

Now, a half decade later, Krost in a way is trying to get back to the NFL.

Not bad for a 74-year-old quarterback.
