Back for One More

By  | 

Former Colorado Buffalo and admitted rape victim Katie Hnida will be lacing up her cleats one more time.

The NCAA granted Hnida one more year of eligibility on Friday to play for the New Mexico Lobos football team.

Before she transferred in 2002, Hnida was on CU's roster as a place kicker but never got into a game.

The NCAA says she was granted the extra year of eligibility because she couldn't play two years for medical reasons. Hnida missed play time her freshman and sophomore years because of mononucleosis and severe throat and tonsil infections.

In February, she told Sports Illustrated she was raped by a CU football player.
