Months before the NFL draft, 24 year old Missouri Tigers Defensive Back, Michael Sam reveals he’s gay.  Sam, arguably one of the best college football players in the country, stated: “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.”

Sam disclosed his sexuality to his teammates last year and said they couldn’t have been more supportive.
