Michael Sam on Tuesday will speak at Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts.

Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted by the National Football League (NFL), will speak at 7PM in the university's Jefferson Academic Center.

Sam is expected to discuss his journey from water boy for his high school football team to his brief career in the NFL.

In 2014, Sam was drafted by the St. Louis Rams but cut before the start of the season. He joined the Dallas Cowboys' 10-man practice squad, where he stayed for seven weeks before being let go. A brief stint playing for the Montreal Alouettes in the Canadian Football League (CFL) ended with him citing “personal reasons.”

Sam became the NCAA All-American football player at the University of Missouri and received the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2014 ESPY Awards.

Sam is a vocal supporter of LGBT rights.
