CAMP TONTOZONA, Ariz. (AP) - Chip Sarafin knew there would be attention, just not this much.
A day after revealing he is gay, the Arizona State offensive lineman was a little surprised to see more than a dozen reporters and cameramen waiting for him after practice Thursday morning.
He took it all in stride, though, saying he hoped one day an athlete coming out would not be such big news.
Sarafin became the first active player in Division I football to come out when he told gay sports magazine Compete for a story for its August issue.
Sarafin follows in the footsteps of St. Louis Rams linebacker Michael Sam, who came out after his playing career was over at Missouri, and Brooklyn Nets center Jason Collins, the first openly-gay player in the four major U.S. sports.
