Last season, paced by 2016 quarterback, Matt Lynch, Broomfield (Col.) Legacy went 6-4. With an opener less than a week away against local rival Broomfield, Lynch, who verballed to UCLA this past spring, talked about his team and its prospects for the upcoming season.
Excitedly, Lynch reports Legacy is “looking really good. We look sharp, with lots of seniors returning.”
Included in the list of returnees and players to watch are linemen Blake Jumps and Wyatt Carlson, tight ends Derek Coleman and Logan Paulson, running back Evan Baugh, and receivers Jack Ruscher, Dalton Royer and Lynch’s little brother Ryan.
Lynch feels the strong senior presence and returning experience will help Legacy. He said, "We'll battle adversity when things are not going our way.”
Now a senior quarterback himself, Lynch is willing and able to handle the leadership responsibility. “I'm leading this team in the right direction," Lynch said. "Making sure everyone is on board and has the same goal, staying positive to keep the team positive and take our team deep in the playoffs, and make a run for our money and the state championship game.”
Lynch, who committed to UCLA early as a way of focusing on his senior season, plans on traveling to Los Angeles on October 3rd when the Bruins host Arizona State. Lynch would like to make one more visit to UCLA but has not decided on the date.
The dual threat signal caller looks to improve on last season’s 22 touchdowns and 2,000 yards of offense this season. If he does build on his numbers and, with his inherent leadership, Legacy could have a playoff caliber season.
