SB Nation’ feature on Jamie Kuntz

Here is the nearly 11-minute feature from SBNation.com on former Dickinson High football player Jamie Kuntz, who was dismissed from the North Dakota State College of Science football team days after lying to his coach that he had brought his 65-year-old boyfriend into the press box and was seen kissing him — and more, NDSCS athletic director Stu Engen said — and later admitted to his coach that he was gay.

It’s an interesting watch, in which we learn a few new things about Kuntz, hear from Engen, a handful of NDSCS football players and students and one very supportive person from Wahpeton who did not know Kuntz before he came out.

This is not the only on-camera interview Kuntz has conducted in recent days. He sat down with ESPN Outside the Lines reporter Tom Farrey last Friday.
