Nicole Lynn, NFLPA certified agent just became the first female agent working under Young Money Apaa Sports. Lynn is one of only 44 female certified NFL agents. Lil Wayne announced on ESPN First Take earlier this year that Young Money merged with APAA Sports, a Dallas-based agency. Per an article from REVOLT, during the First Take episode Lil Wayne stated “It’s just helping these players do more off the football field and off the court,” Lil Tunechi divulged. “To make sure what they do with their finances and credibility help their families for the rest of their lives.”
Lynn is a University of Oklahoma graduate where she received a Bachelors Degree in Business Management and Doctor of Law (J.D.) with honors. In 2015, Lynn made one of the biggest touchdowns of her career thus far, becoming the first female agent to represent top NFL agency, PlayersRep.
Before joining Young Money Apaa Sports, Lynn’s roster already included Denver Broncos’ Cory Nelson and Todd Davis, Cincinnati Bengals’ Jordan Evans, and Washington Redskins’ Kendal Thompson. The former Wall Street financial advisor deems herself an expert at balancing being a FULL-TIME sports agent, practicing attorney at a law firm that ranks within the top 20 in the world, and wife all before the age of 30.
Lynn said “My career goals have always involved being in a male-dominated industries, but I never let that deter me. I believed I could achieve success… so I did.”
