Kuntz said he told his mother that he was gay at the same time he told her he was kicked off the team.

"I’m struggling with it," said Rita Kuntz, choking back tears. "I love Jamie and I’m proud of him, but I know what the school did was wrong."

Rita Kuntz said she has accepted that her son is gay, but she believes he was taken advantage of by his boyfriend, who is more than three times her son’s age.

Jamie Kuntz said he met the man online more than a year ago. Kuntz said the man, whom he would not identify, lives in Colorado and the two have met there a few times in recent months.

As far as his football career, Kuntz says he’s not giving up. He may pursue it as a walk-on at another university outside North Dakota.

"I miss it already," he said.
