Alan Gendreau would seem an unlikely pioneer. He is a former kicker for Middle Tennessee State, the leading scorer in Sun Belt Conference history, a little-known 23-year-old who wants a shot at the N.F.L.
And he is gay.
Recent attention on the sooner-or-later milestone of an openly gay male athlete in a major American team sport has been spurred by a presumption: That the first will be a current professional athlete.
I know nothing about this kid but I say good for him to have the guts to be the possible first gay NFL player. If he does make a roster good player or not kid is going to hit the lottery as an ad man.
I dont see him on the top 16 ranking of Kickers link
