St. Louis Rams 2014 Draft Class News Conference

The first openly gay pro-footballer, Michael Sam, will be getting his own show on thanks to Oprah. Sam was just drafted to the St. Louis Rams last week, and the docu-series will follow him as he gears up toward his first season. The football player made a statement regarding his participation,

“Like every player out there working to make a team right now, my focus is on playing football to the very best of my ability. I am determined. And if seeing my story helps somebody else accept who they are and to go for their dreams too, that’s great.”

Winfrey made a statement, saying,

“We are honored that Michael is trusting us with his private journey in this moment that has not only made history but will shape it forever … acceptance and illumination start here.”

The same people who were behind OWN’s short lived Lindsay Lohan docu-series will be involved in this one.
