Good For Michael Sam and Good For the NFL
In today's seventh round of the NFL draft, as the 249th player to be selected, All-American defensive lineman Michael Sam was drafted by the St. Louis Rams. Sam, who came out publicly as gay earlier in the year (his college teammates already knew), was a standout player while at the University of Missouri. He's the first openly gay player in the NFL. Let's hope his teammates, and other players, will let his play on the field speak for itself.
