Lynch, nicknamed “Beast Mode” for his fierce, physical running style, played 12 seasons in the NFL and won Super Bowl XLVIII with the Seahawks in February 2014. Lynch retired in 2019 after playing with the Seahawks, Raiders and Buffalo Bills.

Lynch was a standout traffic jam at the University of California, Berkeley.
