In the below video from Davey Wavey, Demeester recounts what it’s like being called a “faggot” by an opponent; a situation he faced last Saturday.

After Demeester alerted the referee about the scuffle, the incident was reported to the Penn State Altoona captain and coach. (The opponent was from a satellite campus, Penn State Altoona.)

Talking to OutSportsDemeester says, “In the moment I was disappointed for the fact that they represent Penn State.”

But at the same time it fueled my fire in a way that drove me to play better the rest of the game. I started hitting a lot more because I wanted this ‘faggot’ to beat them.”
