Scott Lynch: Senior Football Player, Fall Athlete Spotlight

Roliana Hannan

Scott Lynch, a senior attending Audubon High School has been on the varsity football team since his freshman year. He plays quarterback for the team. He has been playing football since he was 6 years old and has always loved the sport. His commitment and passion for the sport make him an outstanding athlete. He has always been a three season athlete. He does football in fall, wrestling in winter, and baseball in spring season. During the last game on Thursday November 24, the Thanksgiving game, he set his career record passing yards 2,507. His achievements include, career passing touchdowns 76, single game passing touchdowns 6, and 7,000 career passing yards. 

This fall football season has been his favorite because it is his last season in Audubon, it is one last chance to play with his football friends. “There have been a lot of ups and downs but there have been moments this season I will never forget,” Scott. The team has lost 6 games and won 4 games together. He has described his sadness for not being able to play with his childhood friends on the same field again. During the days he had games, he would get two of his favorite footballs and practice throwing it to the receivers before every game to be prepared. Post games he would meet up or celebrate in the locker room with all of his teammates no matter the outcome of the game. 

During the season his schedule would be full. He described he tried his best to balance the schedule to work on himself and find the time to have fun. He would come to school from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm, his practices would start at 3:00 pm to 5:30 pm, after which he would lift at the gym for an hour, and go home and recover. When he has free time he likes to study film and mentally try to get better on the field. He likes to do off season workouts by working on his speed, lifting, and football workouts. 

He has been looking for colleges but has not been committed yet. He has been playing football for a long time and he would like to continue playing in college. His dream is to travel around the world playing quarterback for the NFL.
