ATHENS — Georgia offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn stands at 6-foot-2 and 302 pounds. So, he is probably really strong, right?
Well, it is quite possible that his Twitter game is stronger.

For the past couple of years, Wednesday’s have become a special day for Wynn’s followers on social media, as the lineman shares some positive thoughts on Twitter with his 4,000+ followers.
This Wednesday segment is what Wynn calls: “#WinWithWynnWednesday” (try saying that five times fast).
Wynn doesn’t recall exactly how he started the Wednesday tradition but does remember that he wanted to spread a little positivity on social media; which sometimes isn’t a pleasant place for a college athlete.
“I don’t remember how I got it going, but I just wanted to start something that had something to do with me but also be motivational,” Wynn said.
Through the years, Wynn has tweeted about finals week…
Finals season is amongst us so member to never stress and always finesse ✊🏾 #WinWithWynnWednesday

but most importantly to Wynn, its about spreading positivity.
Negativity preys on the weak and vulnerable. Despite what you're going through, be strong and persistent. You got it! #WinWithWynnWednesday

But this positive persona isn’t one just meant for his “Twitter Fam.” It’s for his teammates, too.
“He always has a smile on his face around the locker room,” tight end Isaac Nauta said. “I’ve never seen him mad. He is always a guy that brings good energy.”
Even though Wynn laughed when asked about his Twitter segment, it is something that is reaching a good number of his followers, and interest is still growing. With his most recent post featuring more than 70 retweets and 400 favorites (as of 8 p.m. on Wednesday), it is his most engaged #WinWithWynnWednesday tweet yet.
We wake up with two options on how to go about our day; either lay down and give in or we can continue to fight. It’s natural for the body to get tired (mentally, physically or spiritually) but it’s all about the fight. Choose to fight everyday. #WinWithWynnWednesday ✊🏾

“Every week I drop a quote, whether it’s from somebody in my family or somebody that I know,” Wynn said. “Trying to put some motivation and inspiration out there every Wednesday.”
And don’t expect the Wednesday motivational tweets to stop any time soon, especially with the new update that allows for 280 characters instead of 140 in one tweet.
“Yeah,” Wynn said as he laughed about the 280 characters that he has to work with. “It helped a lot.”
So, there you have it, more inspiration from Wynn could be just around the corner. But you will have to wait until next Wednesday for the newest installment.
