Teammates at Villanova, Will Sheridan first told Randy Foye that he is gay while they were in college. Will was the starting power forward, Randy the Team Captain of an elite Wildcat basketball squad. Randy reacted to Will’s news by supporting his brother. As did Will’s teammates. They had a team bond and trust that would not be broken. Keep in mind that this was 2003-2006, so prior to the courageous stories of openly gay athletes such as Michael Sam and Jason Collins. Will waited until a few years after college to discuss his story with the media. He never wanted to be a distraction. He needed basketball and his team was there for him. Unfortunately things were a bit different for Will when he came out to his parents.
