Becca Longo Could Be The First Female NFL Player

While she is a pioneer and history maker, Longo is not necessarily a trailblazer.

The first female to score a field goal in an NCAA game was Tonya Butler when she played for the University of West Alabama and Katie Hnida, Longo’s idol, was the first female to score in a Division I bowl game.
