A gay football player for North Dakota State College claims he was removed from the school’s team after he was seen kissing his boyfriend during a game, Dan Savage reported in Seattle alt-weekly the Stranger.
During a game between North Dakota State College and Snow College in Pueblo, Col., Jamie Kuntz, 18, apparently outed himself by giving his 65-year-old boyfriend a quick peck.
Kuntz was sitting out the game out due to a concussion but was helping film the game from the press box. Keeping him company was his boyfriend and at one point, Kuntz gave him a kiss, which some teammates saw.
On the bus ride home, Chuck Parsons, the football team’s head coach, asked him about the kiss. Kuntz (who says he has always been attracted to older men) lied and said he kissed his grandfather. A few days later, however, the teen was booted from the team. Full story here!
