Most of you probably already know this by now, but I think it should be shouted from the rooftops.
From the New York Times (link to full article is below)
Michael Sam, a college football standout at the University of Missouri who is expected to be chosen in the early rounds of the National Football League draft, said Sunday that he is gay.
|By coming out, Mr. Sam is positioned to be the first publicly gay player in the N.F.L. As a senior last season, Mr. Sam was a first-team All-American at defensive end, leading Missouri to a 12-2 record and a victory in the Cotton Bowl. He was the defensive player of the year in the prestigious Southeastern Conference.|
|In an interview on Sunday with The New York Times, he recalled how he told his teammates last August, “I looked in their eyes, and they just starting shaking their heads — like, finally, he came out.”|
