Arizona State OL Edward Sarafin has announced to the world and his teammates that he is gay according to an interview in Compete, a magazine in Phoenix.
A fifth-year senior, Sarafin broke the news to his teammates at Arizona State last spring.
Sarafin told his story to Phoenix-based Compete magazine, a publication for gay sports. The article by Joshua Wyrick focused on Sarafin’s educational studies in biomedical engineering with his goal of becoming a neurologist and in his volunteer work. The part of Sarafin being gay is addressed in an oh-my-the-way manner near the end.
He came out to his Sun Devils teammates last spring, saying, “it was really personal for me and it benefited my peace of mind greatly.”
