Dell Rapids Coach Opens Up About Life As Gay Athlete

Dell Rapids Coach Opens Up About Life As Gay Athlete
Nate Alfson

DELL RAPIDS, SD -

A Dell Rapids High School baseball and volleyball coach, who is openly gay, is gaining national attention.

In an article he wrote in SB Nation Outsports, Nate Alfson, 25, talks about what it is like being openly gay in South Dakota.  In the article, the Augustana College graduate writes he initially worried about coming out in the world of athletics.

"Because I was a college athlete and now am a high school varsity coach for two different sports, I always had the misconception that I had to be super manly, which meant no musicals, no expressing my feelings or not showing I care by doing nice things for someone else," Alfson wrote.

He also writes about finding acceptance and support where he lives.  Tonight on KELOLAND News at 10, he sits down with Brady Mallory to talk about this experience.
