A Mason is cleared to cheer for Gators


Florida freshman lacrosse player Makenzie Mason, the daughter of Vanderbilt head coach Derek Mason, has been given the go-ahead to cheer for the Gators on Saturday.

“She’s a Gator,” Mason said. “She loves Dad, dearly, but when we signed to go to the University of Florida, that’s who she’s committed to, that’s the way her Dad raised her, I’m good with that. She just knows when she comes back to the house she better not have on any Gator gear.”
