On Sunday, February 9th Michael Sam, a defensive lineman at The University of Missouri became the first openly gay man in football. What makes this story even more interesting is that with the 2014 NFL draft less than a few months away. Sam, who is projected as a third or fouth round draft pick. Could become he first open gay man in the NFL. I decided to go out and interview one of our “Mavericks” and sports fanatic, Matthew Hooks. To see what his opinion is on the Michael Sam announcement and find out how he will fit into the NFL.
