Former NFL player Colton Underwood recently opened up about the extreme measures he took to conceal his sexuality from teammates while in the league. 

"I wouldn't shower after practice because I was afraid of getting turned on in the locker room or in the shower," Colton told Alex Cooper of the Call Her Daddy podcast. "I never really was attracted to anybody who I played with, or coaches. So, it's sort of silly to even say that. But, I wanted to avoid any chance of being outed, so I would not shower with the rest of the team."

"There was just a lot of things that I sort of did differently than other players because I felt like I had to, because I didn't want questions to start being asked."

Underwood expressed how he even slept through parties while intoxicated out of fear of unwittingly revealing his sexuality.
