Derrick Gordon made history by becoming the first openly gay male NCAA Division 1 basketball player. The sophomore starter for the University of Massachusetts men's basketball team said in a statement, "I've always loved sports, but always felt I had to hide and be someone that I'm not. For my whole life I've been living my life as a lie. I am telling my story so that athletes never feel like they have to hide. You can be true to yourself and play the sport that you love."
