Source: Daniel O’Leary / New York Daily News

The father of Michael Sam, the first openly gay NFL draft prospect, tells the Galveston (Tex.) Daily News that he was ‘terribly misquoted’ by the New York Times in a recent piece about his reaction to his son’s announcement.

Michael Sam Sr. says that he never told the Times he was an old school, ‘man-and-a-woman type of guy’ or that he didn’t want his grandkids ‘raised in that kind of enviornment.’

“I did not say anything about my grandkids,” the elder Sam says in the interview.

Michael Sam Sr. also says that some of his thoughts were taken out of context, specifically a quote about Deacon Jones ‘turning over in his grave.’
