Jamie Kuntz was dropped from the North Dakota State College of Science football team less than two weeks ago after he was caught kissing his 65-year-old boyfriend in the press box.
His former coach claimed Kuntz was cut because he lied to his team and thus broke school policy, but Kuntz maintains he was dropped because of his sexual orientation.
Amy Nelson of SB Nation scored an on-camera interview with Kuntz and his family (who only just found out he was gay because of this episode).
