We’re understandably concerned about a football player wearing glasses during a play.
Until we find it’s a kicker. So it’s not even a real football player.

It doesn’t count. Mostly because the likelihood of a kicker making physical conduct in an Ivy League football game is near-zero. And the fact that wearing glasses doesn’t matter in the Ivy League. Face it, after a Linear Algebra final (by the way, don’t take that class unless you absolutely must — it’s as big a challenge as senior-level statistics), kicking in a college football game is nothing important.
Something that would count is a Hall-of-Famer wearing glasses. Here we see Willie Roaf, then of the New Orleans Saints:

Fortunately, he didn’t wear the glasses during play.
