Commenting on Lynn before the school year, Highlanders coach Jim Engles said, “He’s a local kid who had a great senior year. Damon has shown he can shoot, but he’s also a dynamic-type scorer who knows how to get shots. He is also someone who can contribute minutes for us at the point. He has a good work ethic, which we’ve already seen in the time he’s been on campus (taking summer classes).”
