The Herricanes

87 mins


The Houston Herricanes were a part of the first women’s full-tackle football league in the 1970s. Their underdog story is one of commitment, courage, strength and community. Despite adversity and hardship, they fielded a team that was more than the sum of its players purely for the love of the game. What they started was a movement that is still in motion today. Although the story of the Herricanes may be little-known, these tough women were trailblazers, helping to usher in an era of equality for women’s sports with the passing of Title IX in 1972.
