College wrestler Hudson Taylor’s popularity soared to new heights this year. Not only because of his impressive accomplishments as an athlete, (he finished 4th in the country in his NCAA wrestling weight class this season), but also for his outspoken support of gay rights.

Hudson grabbed headlines when he began wearing a Human Rights Campaign sticker on his headgear during competitive wrestling matches—a level of support rarely seen from allies in the athletic world.

Now automobile manufacturer Buick and the NCAA have partnered to create a video spotlight on this extraordinary young man who is redefining what it means to be a straight ally.

You can catch the amazing video at NCAA.com or below.
