In recent years, a number of high-profile stars have opened up about their sexuality, revealing their true feelings. Retired American football player Jeff Rohrer was one of them, as he came out as gay in November 2018. However, after breaking the news, he then made another big announcement.
Born in December 1958, Rohrer grew up in California’s Manhattan Beach, where he showcased some interesting talents as a youngster. Indeed, during his teenage years he began working as a sculptor, alongside playing football at his high school. As he continued to hone his craft, the teenager’s work then started to win awards, proving his talent within the arts sector.
Following his time at high school, Rohrer attended Yale University, combining his academic studies with the sport he continued to excel in. The future NFL star played for The Yale Bulldogs football team, before graduating in 1982. However, his life changed forever later that year.
