Michael Sam is engaged!
The first ever gay player to play in a NFL game proposed to long time boyfriend Vito Cammisano in Italy. Sam has been dating Cammisano since their college days at the University of Missouri. The couple made headlines last year when they shared an emotional hug and kiss, which was aired on television, following the news that Sam had been drafted by the St. Louis Rams.
Michael Sam made history last year as he became the first openly gay player to be drafted into the NFL. The St Louis Rams took him in the seventh round. Sam played in two pre-season games with the Rams before being cut by them. Weeks later, he signed on to the Dallas Cowboys practice squad.
He was released by the Cowboys weeks later and is free agent.
Congrats to the happy couple!
