- Status: Preferred Walk-On
Blake Edward Lynch (b. Dec. 22, 1996) is a walk-on kicker from Eisenhower High School in Goddard who redshirted in 2016. His mother, Kim, also attended Kansas State. He was rated a four-star kicker by KCKicking.com and 3.5 stars by Chris Sailer Kicking.
Lynch lettered two years at Eisenhower under head coach Charlie Nally. He made 7 of 11 field goals during his senior campaign, including a long of 51 yards, after playing soccer as a freshman and sophomore.
Blake shows great work ethic and coachability. In July of 2013, he won the underclassmen Last Man Standing competition at our Wichita camp. He also almost won the Kickoff competition. He makes up for his small stature by having outstanding fundamentals and mechanics.
You know exactly what you’re getting with Blake — a kicker who will never miss hit a ball, make all of the short kicks and give you a shot on the long ones. One of our most game-ready prospects!
Interesting side note: Blake’s sister, Tera Lynch, attempted to follow in his footsteps as the varsity kicker for Eisenhower last fall (she since has committed to play soccer at Washburn University):
“She is the most talented female kicker I’ve ever seen. She’d outkick 85-90 percent of kickers in Kansas,” said former K-Stater Anthony Cantele, who coaches both. “She just happens to be behind the best kicker in Kansas.”
