Coaches at the University of Missouri divided players into small groups at a preseason football practice last year for a team-building exercise. One by one, players were asked to talk about themselves ā€” where they grew up, why they chose Missouri and what others might not know about them.

As Michael Sam, a defensive lineman, began to speak, he balled up a piece of paper in his hands. ā€œIā€™m gay,ā€ he said. With that, Mr. Sam set himself on a path to become the first publicly gay player in the National Football League.

I think it is great that someone feel comfortable enough and that his team accepted him with his announcement.

In my day in the 90's, if someone even hinted at being homosexual, it would have been relentless for them. The teasing and belittling would have been overwhelming for any one. There haver been great strides in 15 years.
