Kathryn Hogg

Kathryn (Kat) was born in Adelaide, Australia to non-Australian parents but grew up in the USA after living in 4 countries before the age of 7.  She was first introduced to footy when ESPN launched in 1980 and founded the Minnesota Freeze in 2004.

She was the leading driver behind the women's competition in the USAFL and was responsible for making the women's division a part of the USAFL Nationals.
