Heisman Winner Kyler Murray Apologizes For Past Homophobic Tweets Which Surfaced After Award

Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray apologized Sunday for several homophobic tweets that he deleted hours after winning the Heisman Trophy. Murray, 21, had used an anti-gay slur in a tweet to friends when he was a teenager.  “I apologize for the tweets that have come to light tonight from when I was 14 and 15,” Murray said on Twitter. “I used a poor choice of word that doesn’t reflect who I am or what I believe. I did not intend to single out any individual or group.”
