Katie Hnida and the University of Colorado

Katie Hnida joined the University of Colorado football team  in 1999, after a successful high-school kicking career. But she never made it onto the field, and by the start of the 2000 season, had withdrawn from the university. Three years later, after transfering to the University of New Mexico – where she'd make history as the first woman to score in an NCAA Division I football game – she went public with allegations that she had been raped by a teammate at Colorado. Her former coach denied that claim, and no charges were ever filed. Today, Hnida travels the country speaking about her experiences as a rape survivor and works with groups like the Voices and Faces Project.
