    I have been seeing these posts on GLAAD and other places about an out gay guy who attended and played for Tennessee and is now trying for an NFL spot. Anybody know if/how he did in the draft?

    Thanks, I searched for his name but nothing came up. It seemed strange that nobody was talking about it.

    You can find him on Facebook. Just search for his name.

    It was Middle Tennessee and there has been no news. He wasn't up for the draft he was just looking for a team to try out for and sign a free agent contract.

    Alan Gendreau hasn't really gotten much traction in the draft. We have several friends in common, although I don't know him personally.

    What is interesting is that he's trying to push his way back into the draft via the social media, using his sexual orientation as a lever. In doing this. he's said. "And there is no issue with my being gay."

    The latter is a bit disingenuous, as Alan spent much of his senior year at MTSU "straightening" his social media. including closing his Twitter account. Some of it probably is that he's young and trying to work through these issues, but at the same time there clearly are still issues.

    I do hope Alan is able to find a place in football, although it doesn't look like it will be pro football, at least here in the US
