But that is not going to stop him from working out with others – most notably his alma mater.
Lynch posted on his Instagram working out with Oakland Tech High, where he last starred in 2003 before joining Cal (which was coached then by current Fresno State coach Jeff Tedford).
In the video, you can see the 31-year-old Lynch – in his Raiders gear – giving a stiff-arm to a teenager on his way to the end zone.
Lynch’s practice time might’ve violated California Interscholastic Federation regulations. Section 503.C of the CIF bylaws says, “Only 9th through 12th grade students may practice with or compete on a high school team.”
TMZ reported that Oakland Unified School District released a statement saying Lynch’s “participation in the practice did not comply with Oakland Athletic League’s rules and regulations. Site administration did not receive prior notice that Lynch would be attending an after-school practice.”
There’s no word if Oakland Tech will be punished for Lynch’s joining the team’s practice.
Lynch was Oakland Tech’s first three-time All-Oakland Athletic League first-team selection. In his final season at Oakland Tech, Lynch rushed for 1,722 yards and caught 17 passes in eight regular-season games.
Lynch will be eligible to return to the Raiders’ active roster on Monday, Oct. 30 following the team’s Oct. 29 game at the Buffalo Bills.
