Ryan O'Callaghan this week became only the 11th NFL player in history to come out as gay as he told his story to Outsports about how he planned on killing himself as soon as his career ended. Fortunately, his life was saved by the intervention of some very special people.

We also will talk with Austin Hodges, a 19-year-old college student who played high school football in rural Texas and also danced with the drill team at halftime of games. Austin found refuge and a subsitutute family through high school sports.
