Avery Saffold: Openly Gay Amherst College Football Captain

College football has a long history of popularity in the United State, and schools generate an average of 32 million dollars in revenue annually from the sport. But despite its success, football hasn’t been for everyone. Gay and bisexual players have only recently started coming out within the last five years. This season, there are seven out players on rosters across the US. After penning an open letter in Outsports last Spring, Amherst College Football Captain Avery Saffold is one of those players. Connecting Point’s Ross Lippman shares his story.
