On Monday, coach Anthony Nicodemo gave a speech to his students, but it was no ordinary pep talk.  The players along with parents listened in as Nicodemo revealed something about his personal life — he’s gay.  It came as a shock to many members of the captive audience.  However, for the high school teacher and coach, it was necessary.

Since his big announcement, Anthony has been getting media attention — newspapers, magazines, television, radio and plenty of messages on Twitter and Facebook.  So far the feedback has been pretty positive.
