Aug 26, 2022

Matt Araiza burst onto the NFL scene during preseason with his ability to punt the ball with the Buffalo Bills. On Thursday, he faced troubling accusations.

The 22-year-old special teams player, who was nicknamed the "Punt God," was one of three people accused of gang-raping a 17-year-old girl while he was a student at San Diego State University last year.

According to the Los Angeles Times, a lawsuit in San Diego Superior Court accuses Araiza of having sex with the minor outside a home and later bringing her to an off-campus party where she was repeatedly raped.

The alleged victim, who was in high school at the time, said she was in and out of consciousness but can recall the moments where the men repeatedly assaulted her.
