Michael Sam’s has made history. Last night (May 10th), the St. Louis Rams selected Sam in the seventh round of the NFL draft.
This makes him the first openly gay player to be drafted into the league. As was expected, cameras were rolling, filming his reaction to winning a slot within the NFL family. With his family and close boyfriend in attendance for support, Michael broke down emotionally when he learned the news. Tears, hugs and a kiss planted on his boyfriend sent media on a buzz. Check out his reaction.
Afterward, he tweeted:
Thank you to the St. Louis Rams and the whole city of St. Louis. ’m using every [ounce] of this to achieve greatness!!
He was the 249th overall pick. Congrats!
