Alex Khvatov:  Describe your experience at the East/West Shrine Game.
Jordan Lynch:  It has been a good experience so far.  I have been trying to pick up on the offense.  I have been trying to learn the defensive schemes that they are doing.  I have been working with quarterback’s coach June Jones.  It doesn’t get any better than that. 
Alex Khvatov:  What has been the highlight for you here this week? 
Jordan Lynch:  Trying to prove to everyone that I am a quarterback.  I am playing against elite competition.  I am going against good defensive players.  Making some throws from the pocket.
Alex Khvatov:  What is the feedback that you have received from scouts?  Do they want you to stay at QB or move to RB?  
Jordan Lynch:  I am a quarterback.  That is who I am.  That is what I am going for.  But I am also realistic.  Whatever gets my foot in the door.  But I am a quarterback first foremost.  I want my shot there. 
Alex Khvatov:  Tell us about your career at Northern Illinois.
Jordan Lynch:  It was a great career.  I started for the last two years.  We have gone to the BCS Bowl.  We have beaten two Big 10 teams.  No MAC school ever did that before.  We wanted to get back to the BCS bowl this year, but it didn’t happen.  We gave a lot of kids that go to mid-major schools hope.  I was also a Heisman finalist.
Alex Khvatov:  What is the highlight of your career? 
Jordan Lynch:  It is nothing about me.  The highlight for me was going out to practice with the guys.  I will always take that with me and I am going to miss it.
Alex Khvatov:  What are your strengths?      
Jordan Lynch:  I improvise well.  When things aren’t there, I can improvise and make some plays. 
Alex Khvatov:  Finish the sentence, Jordan Lynch is….
Jordan Lynch:  I am a winner.  I am a competitor and I will do whatever it takes to win.
