    Former UF star works to empower athletes
    By Kevin Brockway Gvl Sun
    Haley Lorenzen was dependable and consistent in her four-year basketball career at the University of Florida, scoring 1,214 points and grabbing 730 rebounds from 2014-18.

    Now, as a UF graduate student studying sports administration, Lorenzen is on a path to impact student-athletes throughout the country.

    Lorenzen attended the NCAA Convention in Orlando this week and was one of 15 former and current NCAA student-athletes to vote on 11 autonomy proposals. She is one of three athletes from the SEC, a list that includes LSU football player Blake Ferguson and Mississippi State volleyball player Khristian Carr.

    The proposals, which include greater access to agents for career advisement and more access to mental health services, are designed to give student-athletes in the revenue-producing power five conferences (ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, SEC and Pac-12) more of a voice in policies that can affect their college careers.
