Teammate proud that Michael Sam ‘had the courage to come out’

Several Missouri teammates knew about Michael Sam’s sexual preference before he confided in a small group of MU players during a team-building exercise last summer. On Sunday, Sam publicly announced he is gay. “I’m proud that he had the courage to come out — and now to tell the world that he’s gay and he’s comfortable with it,” Henry Josey said.
