YOUNGSTOWN, OH- There are a lot of good coaches in the Mahoning Valley who have great
backgrounds, but it is very hard to say that many have had better career pasts than Clinton Lynch, Lynch,
a former standout at Ursuline, went on to play his college ball at the University of Illinois in the Big Ten,
where he spent four years with the Fighting Illini. While in Champaign, Lynch ran for 557 yards while
also totaling 212 receiving yards. Clinton has since returned to his alma mater to help with the football
program, where he coaches the running backs. Lynch has the cool opportunity of coaching his son
Christian, who is a junior standout on this year’s squad.
In this week’s coaches’ corner, Lynch reminisces over his playing days, talks about what it has been like
to coach his son, and more! Brought to you by:
