Michael Sam is one of the celebrity contestants competing in Season 20 of ABC's ballroom competition series "Dancing with the Stars." He teams with professional partner Peta Murgatroyd.

Michael Sam was raised in Hitchcock, Texas, and attended the University of Missouri on a football scholarship. He made history in 2014 when the star college football player came out as gay ahead of the NFL draft, making him the first openly LGBT player to be drafted in any major American sport.

As a college player at the University of Missouri, Sam was named a first-team All-American and Co-SEC Defensive Player of the Year. Sam's bravery earned him the Arthur Ashe Courage Award at the 2014 ESPY Awards. In 2014, he was named one of GQ Magazine's Men of the Year and was a finalist for Sports Illustrated's Sportsman of the Year.

Sam recently became engaged to his boyfriend, Vito Cammisano.
