This week is a good one for the groundbreaking player, as it was also his 25th birthday just two days ago! And now, the couple are away vacationing in Europe! Sam hasn’t officially made an announcement, but word got out through Instagram when a friend of Cammisano’s revealed the engagement and Sam “liked” the post and hashtag of #vitoisengaged.
The two have been together since their days at the University of Missouri. Sam was formerly drafted by the St.Louis Rams, and when chosen, he famously kissed Cammisano which was caught on camera. Though he was abruptly released by the Rams in August, briefly signed to the Dallas Cowboys’ practice squad, and now a free agent, Sam earned much support for talking about his role as a gay man in American sports, and graced one of GQ‘s Men of the Year covers in December 2014.
Congrats to the lovers! And here’s hoping the defensive player is back on the field soon.
