Lynn University Athletics Director Devin Crosby is determined to help student athletes have the best possible collegiate experience. From helping students understand what being a Fighting Knight means through specialty leadership training, to finding new opportunities to show of their athletics prowess, Crosby is student-centric and always innovating.

In 2017, Crosby announced the NCAA's first-ever widely publicized Division I vs. Division II head-to-head: the South Florida Showdown. The nine-game series gave Fighting Knights teams and the Lynn community a one-of-a-kind experience, bringing big Division I team names to face-off right here in Boca Raton.
