Coach Caitlyn Wurzburger
The best player to ever come from the state of Florida and the best player in the 2020 class, Caitlyn Wurzburger is an incredible role model, ambassador of the game and an intense coach to a blessed group of 2024 players who get to learn from her (and her dad, Rob). Caitlyn has the National high school record for the most points with over 1,000. She has not only won a State Championship, but also a World Championship where she was named to the All-World team. Caitlyn brings a plethora of knowledge and skill-set to the girls she coaches. More than anything her intensity and work ethic are something her players should learn to emulate if they want to improve. Caitlyn will be suiting up as a Tar Heel this year at the University of North Carolina.
COACH TAYLOR MULLEN
Taylor is from a lacrosse family and grew up around the corner from Caitlyn. Taylor and Caitlyn's dads (who both played in college) coached their girl's team growing up. Taylor was a local standout at St. Andrews and currently is a rising junior starter for the University of Vermont women's lacrosse team. Taylor is an amazing player-- she scores, assists, scoops up ground balls and causes turnovers! Taylor knows how to play and coach. The players on the Florida Select 2024 team have some incredible role models coaching them.
