Lynn has become a household name in the sports world, being the first Black woman to represent an NFL quarterback in the 2023 Super Bowl. Clients under her belt include Philadelphia Eagles QB Jalen Hurts, New York Jets DT Quinnen Williams, and Cleveland Browns DE Myles Garrett. At the upcoming NFL draft, she will represent top prospects like Alabama OLB Will Anderson and Texas RB Bijan Robinson.
The 34-year-old has fast climbed the ladder to leadership, only being with Klutch since 2021; her outlook on what football means has set her apart from others. “What I like most about my job is the opportunity to mentor young men and teach them life skills; being a mentor, life coach, and big sister wrapped into one; help them make life decisions,” Lynn said.
Social media seemed unsurprised by the announcement as Lynn received several praises from colleagues and fans. Kevin Parrish, Jr., staff writer for the Arizona Cardinals, wrote, “Super dope. Happy for her.”
