For this week’s Sports Stud, we’ve got the handsome Adam Scott as our feature athlete. No, no… not Adam Scott from NBC’s Parks & Recreation – the Adam Scott from Australia that is a professional golfer and natural born surfer.

It’s an exciting time for Adam Scott right now. Not only is he one of the number one golfers in the world right now, but on April 17, Scott married his longtime girlfriend Marie Kojzar in a small ceremony in the Bahamas, as reported by the Australian Associated Press on Friday. In terms of golf, the 33-year old’s biggest win to date was the 2013 Masters Tournament, his first major championship and the first Masters won by an Australian in its 77-year history.

Check out his pictures below and congratulations to the happy couple!

The NFL draft is taking place as we speak. Michael Sam came out with much fanfare back in February. If picked, he would become the first active openly gay player in the league. The 24-year-old University of Missouri graduate is expected to be a late-round pick. Can you imagine all the mayhem if Sam isn’t chosen. The NFL will surely be slammed with charges of homophobia.

On the eve of this potentially historic weekend, Sam signed his first endorsement deal. Definitely unprecedented for someone who’s not a first round draft pick. Visa posted a video spot featuring the SEC Defensive Player of the Year to its YouTube account on Thursday- the first day of the NFL draft.

“We felt that Michael’s story was a perfect fit for our ‘everywhere’ campaign, which is meant to inspire people to reach their own personal goals and aspirations,” Visa’s chief marketing officer Kevin Burke told ESPN.com. “We wish Michael the best on and off the field as he embarks on the next chapter of his life.”

The Missouri defensive end had 11.5 sacks, 19 tackles for loss and forced two fumbles during his award-winning season. Check out the Visa commercial below.

Notre Dame University is the latest to support the You Can Play initiative. Athletes from their various athletics department ranging from swimming to football filmed a PSA encouraging all genders and sexual orientation to join in on the fun. Most notably, tennis player Matt Dooley who came out last year as gay appears in the clip.

You Can Play brings together gay and straight athletes teaming up for respect. The campaign’s mandate believes locker rooms should be safe and sports venues should be free from homophobia. Athletes should be judged on talent, heart and work ethic, not sexual orientation. Check out Notre Dame’s submission below.

Sports Stud: Russell Teibert

For this week’s Sports Stud, I’ve decided to choose a player from my home team MLS soccer team, the Vancouver Whitecaps. From this same team, I have previously featured the captain Jay DeMerit as well as Left Defender, Jordan Harvey as Sports Studs. This week it’s going to be one of the younger members of the team – Russell Teibert.

Teibert, originally from Niagara Falls, Ontario, had a brief spell with Toronto FC’s academy, before joining the Vancouver Whitecaps Residency program back in 2008. After the 2010 season, he was called in to join the senior team. The club moved to Major League Soccer for the 2011 season and Teibert was signed on.

Aside from his good looks and playing ability, one of the other reasons he came to mind for a feature is because lately I’ve been getting compared to him because when I play soccer or am at CrossFit, I have been putting my hair into a tie, sort of a samurai/top knot type deal. So people have been saying “your hair is like Teibert’s hair.” Anyway, check out his pictures and a video of him getting his hair styled (a previous look he had) at the barber below.

For this week’s Sports Stud, we’re featuring sexy Major League Baseball player, Giancarlo Stanton. He plays as an outfielder for the Miami Marlins and prior to the 2012 season, he was known as “Mike” Stanton. Last year, Stanton was featured in ESPN’s annual “Bodies We Want” issue and in case you missed his stunning photos, I’ve included them below.

Stanton is off to a stellar start this season. Yesterday (April 18) the 24-year old hit a walk-off grand slam home run against the Seattle Mariners. At this point, he’s now on pace for 57 home runs this season.

Check out his photos as well as a behind the scenes video from last year’s ESPN shoot below. Enjoy!

For this weeks Sports Stud we’ve got the sexy Dwyane Wade from the the NBA’s Miami Heat basketball team. Last year, Wade won his third NBA championship in 2013, when the Heat defeated the San Antonio Spurs in the 2013 NBA Finals. Wade plays the shooting guard position, but is also capable of playing point guard. The 32-year-old is also well known for converting difficult layups into points after collisions with opponents.

Not only does he stand out on the court, but he also stands out with his style and good looks. Wade has been featured in several magazines including GQ, Men’s Health, Vogue, Vman, Esquire, and many more. He’s incredibly handsome and has abs for days.

Check out his photos below.

derrick-gordan-comes-out

The minute Jason Collins became the first openly gay man in the NBA, I had a feeling it would open the floodgates for more athletes to take the plunge. In fact, the positive reaction Collins received inspired Derrick Gordon to follow suit.

The University of Massachusetts sophomore is the latest athlete to publicly come out as gay. He makes history as the first openly gay player in Division I men’s college basketball. I have a feeling 2014 will be remembered as the year of the gay athlete.

“I just didn’t want to hide anymore, in any way,” Gordon told ESPN. “I didn’t want to have to lie or sneak. I’ve been waiting and watching for the last few months, wondering when a Division I player would come out, and finally I just said, ‘Why not me?’”

Gordon revealed his basketball coach Derek Kellogg helped him break the news to his teammates.

“We’re all here together, and we need to love each other for who we are,” Coach Derek said to the team. “One of your family members, your brother, wants to let you know something about himself.” And then Coach Kellogg said, “I wanted to let you all know I’m gay.”

Derrick then interjected, “No, he’s not. But I am.” Check out his interview with ESPN below.
