YOUNGSTOWN, OH- There have been many memorable names of running backs that have come
through the Mahoning Valley over the years on the gridiron, and there’s a good chance that when it’s all
said and done Christian Lynch can be a name that you can add to that list. Only a junior, Lynch has been
the workhorse for an Ursuline offense that has been one of the most explosive across the valley this
season, and he hopes to continue to ride the wave of this season all the way through Week 16.

   Arguably Lynch’s most remarkable performance thus far came a few weeks ago in a marquee Steel-Valley
Conference showdown with then-undefeated Youngstown Chaney. Christian put on a show in front of a
packed house at Rayen Stadium, rushing for 244 yards on 37 carries, finding the end zone four times.
Ursuline was able to squeak out a victory against the Cowboys 30-27, giving Chaney their first loss on
the season.
In this week’s Player Profile, Lynch talks about his incredible start to the season, taking over for a back
like DeMarcus McElroy, what to look for in this week’s match up against Youngstown East, and more! Brought to you by:
