WACO, Texas (AP) - All-America defensive end James Lynch is bypassing his senior season at Baylor. The 6-foot-4, 295-pound defender says it's time to chase his next dream of playing in the NFL. He announced his decision in a social media post. He says he was proud to be part of Baylor's turnaround from 11 losses two years ago to 11-3 this season. The Bears played in the Big 12 championship game and Sugar Bowl. Lynch finished his junior season with school records of 13 1/2 sacks and 19 1/2 tackles for loss. His 22 career sacks are also a school record.
