Blythe has started 31 straight games over the past three years and has 35 career starts. Last season, Blythe started the first six games at center before moving to guard for the final seven games due to injuries to others in the offensive line.

Blythe was named second team All-Big Ten by league coaches in 2014 after earning honorable mention recognition in 2013.

Blythe is a native of Williamsburg. He has been named to Iowa's Leadership Group for four straight years.
