Trojans Embrace Sam

| No Comments

Two Trojans helped pave the way for openly gay Missouri DE Michael Sam to make history this weekend as St. Louis head coach Jeff Fisher drafted the SEC Defensive Player of the Year and safety T.J. McDonald made it clear that he would be more than welcome in the Rams' locker room.

Fisher is the perfect coach to usher Sam into the league.  Over his two decades as an NFL head coach, he has earned a reputation as a man who leads from the front.

"I know exactly what we're getting into, and I'm not worried at all," Fisher said after the draft. "Michael Sam will help us, and we'll give him every chance to succeed, and you know what? It's gonna be pretty cool."

Following suit, McDonald, who is a former USC defensive back like his head coach, tweeted out the unsentimental truth of the NFL in support of the pick.
