Vito Cammisano Revealed as Michael Sam's Mystery Man

After Michael Sam made history by becoming the first openly gay player to be drafted into the NFL on Saturday, he gave a big smooch to a mystery man.

The emotional video clip was broadcast on ESPN and made waves across the U.S., but everyone wants to know who is Sam's boo?

Reports have identified Vito Cammisano as Sam's 23-year-old boyfriend. He and Sam both attended the University of Missouri, where Cammisano was on the swim team from 2009 to 2012, according to Sports Grid. (Check out this photo of Cammisano in action as a junior.) The site reports that the communications major came out three years ago and graduated in 2013.

Move over, Tom and Gisele. After that adorable video, Sam and Cammisano seem poised to become the NFL's newest power couple.
