Speaking of Katie Hnida...

I thought I was so fresh remembering Hnida in yesterday's post about female football players.

Looks like she is ready to hit the PR circuit to promote her memoirs...Gary Barnett is furiously trying to contact his attorneys as we speak.

ESPN reports that Hnida wrote a book of her memoirs, published by a division of Simon and Schuster. You may remember her as the kicker who left C0lorado U after detailing sexual abuse, then walked on at New Mexico to score the first points ever for a female in major college football.

The article highlights that Hnida took some time to heal emotionally from all the events at CU, so it is great to see her receiving awards from NOW as she speaks around the country urging women to come public after sexual abuse.
