ASU Lineman Sarafin Comes Out As Gay

(Tempe, AZ) -- Arizona State senior offensive lineman Chip Sarafin is coming out as gay. The 6-foot-6, 320-pound backup revealed his sexuality to the Phoenix-based magazine "Compete." Sarafin came out to his Sun Devil teammates last spring saying, "It was really personal for me and it benefited my peace of mind greatly." He is believed to be the first openly gay major college player to publicly come out while still playing.

Former Missouri defensive end Michael Sam came out to his teammates last year while still playing collegiately, but did not publicly reveal his sexuality until after the season. Sam was drafted by the St. Louis Rams in May, becoming the first openly gay player to be drafted in the NFL.
