North Carolina basketball, football players among athletes in great You Can Play video

The University of North Carolina athletic teams has released a terrific video for the You Can Play Project. It has the most diverse group of sports and athletes of any of these I've seen. Especially notable are the appearances of J.P. Tokoto and Nate Britt from men's basketball and football players Shakeel Rashad, Allen Champagne, Jon Heck and Jarrod James.

"It is important for all LGBT students athletes to be accepted by the people they spend most of their time with," Britt says in the video.

There has never been an openly gay major college men's basketball or football player, so it was important that UNC included athletes from those sports. It's also important to see so many female athletes involved since we need more female allies in sports. This video is the very definition of inclusive.
