50% of College Footballers Know of At Least One Openly Gay Teammate


In a recent ESPN magazine story, about half of the college football players surveyed said they have at least one gay teammate. This is shocking considering the homophobia that is still apparent in sports today. How many openly gay college or NFL football players can you think of? The article also notes that 70% of players in the PAC-10 (USC, Cal, Oregon, Arizona, etc) said they have at least one gay teammate. Maybe the West Coast is just a little more accepting than the East Coast, SHOCKER!
