SC Featured The Courage Game

ESPN‘s SC Featured has a unique story airing in the Sunday, Aug. 30, editions of SportsCenter. Ten years ago, ESPN profiled Andrew Goldstein, a Dartmouth College lacrosse goalie and the first openly gay male athlete to play in an American professional sport league. His story created an unlikely connection with a 12-year-old lacrosse player named Braeden who came out to his family and friends this spring. When Braeden was bullied by classmates, his father turned to the Internet for help, finding ESPN’s story on Andrew Goldstein. A simple email paved the way for the first Courage Game, a lacrosse game to encourage and support gay youth while promoting equality. Greg Garber, who covered ESPN’s story ten years ago, has this SC Featured story on courage and healing through the power of sports.
