ASU lineman comes out publicly


Arizona State offensive lineman Edward "Chip" Sarafin told Compete Magazine -- a Tempe, Arizona-based LGBT publication -- in its most recent issue that he is gay.

Like former Missouri defensive lineman Michael Sam, Sarafin came out to his team before going public.

Sarafin becomes the first current Division I college football player to publicly announce he is gay.
