Check out our daily rundown.

Lead Story

On Monday, Florida State’s athletic department announced a program called Apex to capitalize on Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) legislation.

According to a release, “Apex’s objective is to allow all 500 Seminole student-athletes to maximize Florida State’s national brand and put the student-athletes in the optimal position to capitalize on the benefits of the NIL bill passed in Florida.”

“This comprehensive, campus-wide approach to servicing FSU’s student-athlete population ensures the Seminoles have access to experts locally and in a manner that fits the schedule of the student-athlete and not vice-versa. This approach allows the student-athlete to be the sole focus of those who are empowering them to elevate in this new college environment,” the release reads.
