Written by Mike Turner on January 28, 2014

Willamette University Freshman Conner Mertens (in hat) may be the first active college football player to come out publicly. That according to An article published today.

Willamette University introduced Conner today along with his coach and some of his fellow team members. Mertens said he came out because he felt comfortable doing so and has had nothing but support from the school and friends and family back home in Tri-Cities, Washington.

Conner Mertens is looking forward to playing for Willamette this fall.
