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, who turns 31 on Sunday, was a four-year starter at the Southwestern Athletic Conference school. As a senior in 2002, he set a Division I-AA (now FCS) single-season record with 20 sacks.
In nine seasons with the Colts, he is a four-time Pro Bowl selection and has collected at least 9.5 sacks seven times. He was a member of the Colts’ Super Bowl XLI championship squad.
