Will Sheridan

Will Sheridan is a former college basketball player, who played for the Villanova Wildcats Men's Basketball program from 2003 to 2007. After graduation he played as an international basketball player in Italy. He is now a singer, musician and recording artist signed with Royal Advisor Records. He is also a businessman and manager in a company in the fashion industry.

At the beginning of his freshman year, Will Sheridan came out privately to his teammate and roommate at Villanova Mike Nardi as being gay. He also came out to his parents months later, after he ended his freshman year in the university. His teammates at Villanova knew about his homosexuality, but kept a "wall of silence" opting for team unity. On May 16, 2011, and in an interview with Dana O'Neil on, he came out publicly at the age of 26, after retiring from basketball. After the publication of the article, he also appeared on ESPN's Outside the Lines.

In an interview with Outsports, he said many of his songs, most notably "You Know I Got It" and "Set Fire in the Streets" did contain lyrics about homosexuality prior to coming out publicly.

His latest release "Giant" is available on iTunes
