She is a well-respected figure around the team who goes to great depths to teach what she knows about the game, which is an infinite amount of knowledge.
Several FSU players have been impressed with what Wynn has taught them, whether its working on fielding techniques, find a rhythmic swing in the indoor batting facility or proper footwork when running the bases. Wynn has shown that her intelligence of the game is all-encompassing, and she has assisted Head Coach Lonni Alameda in a variety of ways to better each student-athlete and the program itself.
Wynn joined the Florida State softball staff as a volunteer coach in 2011 after a very successful playing career at FSU.
