Michael Sam has been selected as the winner of the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.

The former Missouri defensive end, who likely will be taken in this week's NFL draft, will receive the award given to individuals who transcend sports at the 2014 ESPYS on July 16.

Sam, the SEC's defensive player of the year this past season, has announced he is gay and would become the first openly gay player in the NFL. He said in an interview with ABC's "Good Morning America" on Tuesday that he hopes to inspire other athletes.

I will laugh my ass off if Sam winds up as an undrafted free agent.
