College football star, who is set to enter the 2014 NFL draft, Michael Sam just made a brave announcement to the world that he is gay. Check out his interview inside and get into his amazing story….
In a major announcement–which really shouldn’t be that major in 2014 but it is since he’s possibly about to make history–Missouri University football player Michael Sam just revealed in a national interview that he is a gay man. And if the Associated Press’ SEC Defensive Player of the Year does get drafted, he will become the first openly gay NFL player.
Speaking to ESPN a few months before the 2014 draft, he said:
“I understand how big this is. It’s a big deal. No one has done this before. And it’s kind of a nervous process, but I know what I want to be … I want to be a football player in the NFL.”
