Class act on and off the sphere. He understood there was more to life than football.”

Playing alongside Hall of Fame linebackers Willie Lanier and Bobby Bell, Lynch led Kansas City to a Super Bowl IV victory. The 1968 Pro Bowler compiled 17 interceptions and 14 fumble recoveries over 151 profession games.

Kansas City inducted Lynch into the team’s Hall of Honor in 1990. Two years later, the previous Notre Dame standout also made the College Football Hall of Fame.
