Some kicker from WVU.  Louisville had a #100 once too.

I think the #100 WVU kicker was to commemorate the 100th anniversary of college football in 1969. I thought I read once where several teams did something special for that in ‘69.

What I recall reading was that WVU used helmet numbers at the time, and got permission that year to have every player put a 100 on their helmet, but just the kicker got to use it as a jersey number.

Interestingly, that would make this 150, and I've heard nothing about them doing anything.  MLB made a big deal that same year (1969) about 100 years, although that was more of a marketing ploy after decreasing attendance numbers, in conjunction with lowering the mound to increase offense.  They basically picked a year a barnstorming team in Cincinnati, that sort of became the Reds, started playing.  But again, nothing for 150.

The NFL was celebrating 50 years that same year, and seemed to have a patch, and name an all time team, but that was it.  But oh boy, they are making a big deal of 100.  I also recall 75 being a big deal for them.  That was the first time I remember teams specifically wearing throwback jerseys.

I think Kansas had one too.

This was sort of a thing for the 1969 season, when some teams wanted to honor the 100th anniversary of CFB by selecting one player to wear the number "100" for that season only.  Most other schools had "100" decals for their helmets.

https://uni-watch.com/2016/02/18/a-brief-history-of-college-football-players-wearing-uniform-no-100/

Up until now, I was aware of only one college football player who wore a triple-digit number. That would be West Virginia punter/kicker Chuck Kinder (shown above), who wore No. 100 in 1963. That was the year that all WVU players wore “100” on their helmets to commemorate the state’s centennial, but only Kinder had permission to wear the number on his jersey.

But it turns out at least two other college gridders have worn No. 100. You can see one of them in these photos of a Louisville/Memphis State game from 1969 (the team in white is Louisville).
