Arizona State Offensive Lineman Edward 'Chip' Sarafin Comes Out

David Mixner and I are especially proud of this one!

Via Deadspin:
In an interview with Compete Magazine, Arizona State [walk-on] offensive lineman Edward "Chip" Sarafin revealed that he is gay. Sarafin is currently a backup lineman on the Sun Devils football team, and is pursuing a master's degree in biomedical engineering. In the article, Sarafin explains that he has actually been out to his teammates since last spring: Of his own coming out, Sarafin began telling his teammates last spring. "It was really personal to me, and it benefited my peace of mind greatly. Sarafin says that he told his teammates mostly for himself and because he wanted them to hear it straight from him instead of the college rumor mill that all players find themselves subjected to at some point.
Congrats, Chip -- the bears'll love you!

Uh...OK...but fact check maybe?

He has NEVER played in any official college football game. He is a BACKUP 5th year player.

Congrats on coming out!

Not even bears could forgive that outfit, though.
