Former Villanova basketball player Will Sheridan on Monday revealed publicly that he is gay.
Sheridan, who graduated four years ago, and recently launched a rap career, is only the second former Division 1 male basketball player to come out, John Amaechi being the first.
Will Sheridan went to Villanova with the same dream every college kid totes in his suitcases to college — to become the person he was supposed to be.
He found that person. It’s a wonderfully complicated, constantly evolving and multidimensional person.
He’s an athlete, a former Division I basketball player who was good enough to start for most of his four seasons, pivotal seasons as the Wildcats blossomed into a national power.
He’s an artist, a performer who is packing the club scene in New York, people responding to his music and his message.
He’s a businessman, a manager at a world-renowned fashion retailer.
And he happens to be gay.
