He also passed for 2,892 yards and 24 TD as he accounted for 47 TDs in his senior year.

In addition, Lynch rushed for 1,815 yards and passed for 3,138 yards as a junior. He accounted for 99 touchdowns in his career, including 91 over his final two seasons.

Lynch was not selected in the NFL Draft in May, but he signed with the Chicago Bears as a free agent and is attempting to make the team as a running back.
