Michael Sam to Open Worcester State’s Diversity Leaders Series

Friday, September 22, 2017

 

Michael Sam

Michael Sam, the first openly gay player drafted into the National Football League, will kick off Worcester State’s Diversity Leaders Series with a presentation titled "From Hitchcock High to the NFL: I am Michael Sam."

The presentation will take place on Wednesday, September 27 at 11:30 a.m. at the May Street Banquet Hall.

About Sam

A University of Missouri football star, Sam was believed to be an early round 2014 NFL draft pick.

He came out as gay during an ESPN interview, and many felt the revelation resulted in his being drafted in the last round, instead, by the St. Louis Rams.

Since then, Sam has become a spokesperson for the LGBTQ community, and received ESPN’s Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2014 ESPY’s.

He offers the story of how he kept his sexuality a secret as a small-town Texas football star, then leveraged his personal strength to come out publicly, and the lessons he's learned.
