Georgia Tech A-back Clinton Lynch found himself a spot in the Georgia Tech history book in the second quarter of the Jackets matchup against Bowling Green when he surpassed 1,000 career receiving yards.
Senior a-back Clinton Lynch became the first Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket on Saturday to break the 1,000 career rushing yards and 1,000 career receiving yards mark. The senior a-back set the feat on a 41-yard reception pass from Tech quarterback TaQuon Marshall. It was Marshall first reception of the day and his seventh on the season.
Lynch on Saturday entered the game with seven rushes for 39-yards and six receptions for 168-yards. Putting him just 32-yards shy of joining the 1,000/1,000 club.
According to College Football Reference’s play index, Lynch is the 68th player since 2000 to have at least 1,000 career receiving yards and 1,000 career rushing yards. He is also one of six Yellow Jackets since 2000 to have at least 120 career rushing attempts and 35 career receptions.
Lynch’s best season and a majority of his 1,000-yards in both categories came in the 2016 season when he had 415 rushing yards and 490 receiving yards.
The Yellow Jackets lead the Bowling Green Falcons 28-10 at halftime. Lynch at halftime has a total of 52 yards with two carries for 11-yards to go along with one reception for an additional 41-yards. The Yellow Jackets are looking to pick up their first victory over an FCS program in the 2018 season on Saturday after losing each of their last three since their season-opening victory over Alcorn State.
