Yahoo – Jamie Kuntz started to tear up when he was told that he had been dismissed from the North Dakota State College of Science football team on Sept. 3; in the freshman linebacker’s mind, he had nothing wrong. But two days earlier, Kuntz’s coach, Chuck Parsons, had pulled him off the team bus and asked him about a “distraction” that had occurred in the press box during the Wildcats blowout loss to Snow College during the Mile High Shootout in Pueblo, Colo. By the end of the day on Sept. 3, Kuntz was packing up his locker and he believes it’s because of his sexual orientation. Kuntz, 18, had been injured much of fall camp and had only practiced a couple days prior to the trip. So, the coaching staff asked him to film the game from the press box. While in the press box, Kuntz invited his 65-year-old boyfriend, who lives in Colorado, to join him to watch the game. During the second half of the 63-17 blowout, Kuntz took a minute away from the camera to kiss his boyfriend. The kiss was caught by some of Kuntz’s teammates and word started to spread. Up until that point, Kuntz had hidden the fact that he was gay.
Kuntz, who is from Dickinson, N.D., acknowledged that the kiss was more than a “peck” but said it wasn’t a “hardcore makeout session.” And Kuntz had a good reason for initially lying. His sexuality was still largely a secret. With the exception of a couple close friends, Kuntz hadn’t told anyone he was gay, not even his mother. “It was awful,” Kuntz said of coming out that way. “Especially being a football player and trying to make a name for myself. It was one of those things where I wanted to do it on my own time, not when all this happened.”
Kuntz also said he didn’t think his boyfriend’s age had anything to do with it and that if he had been seen kissing an older woman, “it would have been one of those things where I would have been congratulated on it.”
Kuntz said he thought about bringing legal action against NDSCS, but wasn’t sure how to go about it. Now, he’s just worried about what the story and the dismissal might do to his football future.. He said Washington, Colorado and Minnesota are among his top choices and, according to an article in The Dickinson Press, he did receive interest from Minnesota coming out of high school.
This gayball is too sassy for his own good. Oh this isn’t how you wanted to come out of the closet? You wanted to do it on your own terms? Well maybe you shouldn’t be making out with grandpa in the fucking press box then? You ever think of that? Like spare me all this mumbo jumbo about how you got dismissed because of your sexual orientation. Bottomline is making out in the press box with people 50 years older than yourself is going get you kicked off the team 100 percent of the time. Doesn’t matter if you’re straight, gay, playing at Alabama or playing at Dakota State College of Science. This isn’t Woodstock you hippy. You just can’t turn the Press Box into Studio 54. Can’t do it. Get over yourself gayball.
PS – This kid thinking he has a chance to walk on at Washington, Colorado or Minnesotat may be the funniest thing we’ve ever printed.
Double PS – I’m kind of intrigued by this 65 year old guy. Must be hung like a horse to snag a young piece of dick like this kid.
