Great things can happen when you have the courage to be yourself. And we couldn't think of anyone more deserving of the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2014 ESPYs! Congratulations Michael Sam!
He's certainly in good company! Legends like John Carlos, Bille Jean King and Muhammed Ali are all past winners. Presented by The Rock, the crowd was introduced to Michael in a emotional tribute video that shows just how far the talented player has come. Are you blown away by Michael's strength and courage?
Not letting his illness get him down, Arthur began to educate others about HIV and AIDS, founding the Arthur Ashe Foundation for the Defeat of AIDS. The Arthur Ashe Courage Award is given out to a player who shows their courage and overcomes adversity.We definitely agree that Michael deserves this award. He is the picture of courage and has become an inspiration to many.
So, peeps what do you think? Were you glad to see Michael Sam receive the award? Let us know! Show less
