This is by far one of the easiest WARRIOR WEDNESDAYS I’ve had the pleasure of writing! 24-year-old Michael Sam, announced to the world last week that he is a proud gay man, and he should be. But what’s the big deal, right? The big deal is that Michael Sam is also a phenomenal football player, voted MVP by his teammates at the University of Missouri. Sam is a defensive lineman, he’s the guy you put up there to intimidate the offense, protect your line and make sure the other team doesn’t score. Michael Sam is busting right through all the stereotypes, and making a name for himself as a courageous, talented, and outspoken WARRIOR!
Michael’s teammates already had an idea when Number 52 announced that he was gay. In a New York Times article, Sam said “they just started shaking their heads — like, finally, he came out.” Sam has often been considered an easy pick in the upcoming NFL draft, but now there is speculation as to whether or not his coming out will prevent him from being chosen. I can guarantee that any team who is smart enough to pick not only a great player, but a great leader, is going to gain a new fan in me, and likely a whole lot of others! Congratulations Michael Sam, you are a true WARRIOR!
