Alabama A&M to retire Mathis’ number

Robert Mathis deserves and is receiving recognition for his outstanding career thus far:

Alabama A&M will retire the college jersey of Indianapolis Colts defensive end Robert Mathis in a ceremony on March 3. 

Mathis’ No. 55 will be retired at halftime of Alabama A&M’s annual spring game.

Mathis started all four years for the Bulldogs and set an NCAA Division I-AA (now FCS) record for 20 sacks in a single season before joining the Indianapolis Colts.
