Michael Sam


On February 9, 2014, NFL prospect Michael Sam revealed he was gay — a bold move considering he has yet to be drafted.  If Sam is drafted in the 2014 NFL Draft, which seems inevitable considering his record on the field, he could become the first active player who was openly gay in NFL history.  After rumors of him being outed, Sam said to ESPN, “I just want to make sure I could tell my story the way I want to tell it.  I just want to own my truth.”
