Michael Sam has made history by being the first openly gay college athlete in America.  This has helped him to gain a great amount of instant fame and opportunity, which led to ESPN following him on the day of the NFL draft.  Sam got his wish by being selected as a member of the St. Louis Rams.

Bleacher Report tells the rest:

Michael Sam has officially made NFL history.

The St. Louis Rams selected Sam in the seventh round with the 249th overall pick. When Sam received the phone call from the Rams, he began to break down.

After being selected, Sam is on his way to potentially becoming the first openly gay active player in the NFL.

Watch the video above to see Sam’s reaction in what was arguably one of the greatest moments from this year’s draft.

After the phone call, Sam sent out a tweet to thank the Rams organization and the city of St. Louis:
