Soon to be Missouri Tiger alum and NFL draft pick Michael Sam announced he was gay on Sunday evening and the support has been overwhelming (as it should be).

The love isn’t just coming from the NFL crowds (and players) though as it appears students at the University of Missouri decided to show their support to Sam by creating snow art at Faurot Field.

Blanketed in the white stuff, a fan (or a collection of them) made their way towards the frosty end zone where a large Missouri team logo sits. Using that to their advantage, the fans wrote ‘S-A-M’ in the snow with the Missouri ‘M’ logo finishing off his name. Beautiful how that worked out.

Either those fans or a stadium employee then walked to the top deck and captured the feel good moment in all of its glory, a photo which has taken the internet by storm.

Very cool effort by the fans and very cool looking picture. Well done.
