Way to go, Michael Sam.

The upcoming NFL draftee is hoping to become to league’s first openly gay player and wants the team that chooses him to have no doubts about his sexuality. Michael Sam’s University of Missouri teammates accepted him, the country accepts him…

Hell, the POTUS supports him.


But the real question: Will the NFL?

“Jason Collins is an activist; Wade Davis is an activist,” says the 24-year-old Sam. “I see myself as a football player.”

Pick up this week’s issue of Sports Illustrated to read more of his interview and follow him on Twitter (@MikeSamFootball) to keep up with his journey to the draft.
