How well do you know NIU quarterback Jordan Lynch?
Lynch, currently enrolled in organizational/corporate communication at NIU, was honored recently with a collection of letters and photos from alumni, friends, staff and faculty from the College of Education. The booklet was put together to honor him for placing third for the Heisman Memorial Trophy and for being a leader on and off the field.
Besides being a football star, the Chicago native has been on the dean’s list, has visited elementary and middle schools in DeKalb and Sycamore to read to children and has run youth football camps.
“We couldn’t be prouder of you if you were our own son!” Sue and Jack Satterthwaite, class of 1971, wrote in the booklet.
“The NIU football teams have made my experience at NIU that much more enjoyable. Stay hungry, stay humble,” said Jeff Delapaz, student advocate of NIU Career Services.
“Never did I believe I would be watching the team and its quarterback on a national stage this large,” Don Holland, class of 1968, said. “If it wasn’t on my bucket list, it should have been.”
