Antonia Bennett had a stellar four-year career with the FAMU Lady Rattlers. She capped her time with the Lady Rattlers by winning the MEAC Player of the Year award for 2012, leading her squad to a 21-win season. After acquiring her bachelor’s degree in criminal justice in May, Bennett began working out for professional teams and leagues across the globe.
