University of Missouri Player: I'm Gay

Missouri All-American Michael Sam says he is gay, and the defensive end could become the first openly homosexual player in the NFL.

Sam told The New York Times he came out to his teammates and coaches at Missouri in August.

He says he's coming out because he wants to 'own it' before anyone else breaks the story about him.

The 255-pound Sam participated in the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., last month after leading the SEC in sacks (11.5) and tackles for loss (19), and he is projected to be a mid-round NFL draft pick.
