Openly Gay Soccer Player Robbie Rogers joins the LA Galaxy

Robbie Rogers thought he was done with soccer, but he's not. He's actually back with the jump-off.

Robbie has joined LA Galaxy soccer team and became the first openly gay athlete to play in an American soccer league.
“For 25 years, I’ve been afraid to share a secret with someone,” Rogers said. “And I finally did that. I kept my secret because I thought I couldn’t be both a soccer player and a gay athlete. 
“I was afraid to be back in an environment that affected me in the past. After I finally got in here, everything was completely normal.”
Robbie signed a multiyear contract with the team. I wish him the best.
