Stanford University Says “You Can Play”
Stanford University has become the second PAC 12 school to make a video in support of LGBT athletes for the You Can Play Project.
The video features 28 student athletes, coaches, administrators, and staff all spreading the message that no matter what your sexual orientation or gender identity is, “If you can play, you can play.”
Of particular interest to soccer fans is the participation of forward Chioma Ubogagu, a member of the team that won Stanford’s first NCAA chmapionship. Internationally, her 89th minute goal last year secured the US Under 20 Team the CONCACAF Championship in a win over Canada. She was also a major player in the U-20 World Cup last year, scoring an extra time goal against North Korea to secure the USA a spot in the semifinals. The team would go on to defeat Nigeria and Germany to win the World Cup.
Go Cardinals and especially Chioma!
