KUSA - Linebacker Michael Sam from Missouri will speak to nearly 800 media members Saturday at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Sam recently announced that he is gay, something no other football player has done.
At the Combine this week several of his Missouri teammates have had nothing but positive things to say about Sam.
"He's the toughest guy I know", L'Damian Washington said about his former teammate.
Rod Mackey is in Indianapolis and will be covering the story throughout the day on all platforms of 9NEWS.
