Katie Hnida was born May 17, 1981 and is an American football player who became the first woman to score in an NCAA Division I-A game, college football's highest level. She accomplished this as placekicker for the University of New Mexico Lobos on August 30, 2003.

Hnida is the third woman to have scored in a college football game, after Liz Heaston, who played for NAIA Willamette University in 1997, and Ashley Martin, who played for NCAA Division I-AA Jacksonville State University in 2001. While at University of Colorado Boulder in 1999 she became the second woman to dress for a Division I-A game, and the first to do so for a bowl game.

Hnida travels around the country to share her athletic story and her journey as a survivor of sexual assault. She commonly speaks at colleges and universities to educate and raise awareness about assault. Katie has worked with many organizations that help victims of assault, including The Joyful Heart Foundation and the Voices and Faces Project. She has resided in New York City where she managed her speaking engagements and book tour. Her father, Dave Hnida is the medical reporter for the CBS affiliate. He is also the author of "Paradise General: Riding the Surge at a Combat Hospital in Iraq"

In 2006, Hnida wrote a book about her experiences, titled Still Kicking: My Journey as the First Woman to Play Division One College Football. It details abuse and sexual assault she experienced while at Colorado, as well as her experiences afterward at the University of New Mexico.

In 2010, Hnida became the kicker for the Fort Wayne FireHawks in the Continental Indoor Football League. The league's first female player, and only the second female professional football player in history (after placeholder Patricia Palinkas), Hnida played in the first three games of the team's season but was released later that year after developing a blood clot in her kicking leg. She continues to play semi-pro football, kicking for the Colorado Cobras in the Colorado Football Conference, and the KC Mustangs in the Interstate Football League. As of 2011, Hnida resides in New York City.
