Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch (Chicago/Mt. Carmel) earned Associated Press' All-America Team as the second team all-purpose player and an honorable mention quarterback on Sports Illustrated's All-America Team. Lynch finished the regular season as the nation's leader in rushing (1,771) and total offense (4,753).
Lynch becomes the first Huskie to be honored by the AP since 2006, when Garrett Wolfe earned third team honors at running back. The NIU quarterback is also the first NIU player on the AP's second team since Michael Turner did so in 2003. He is the seventh Huskie to be named on the AP's first, second or third team.
