Celebrate Go Skateboarding Day with John Kelly

Skateboarding and football may be an uncommon pairing, but not for Los Angeles Rams running back and avid skateboarder John Kelly.

In an interview with skateboarding company The Berrics, the 22-year-old RB talked about his 15 years of participation in the sport, saying that the passion off the field has allowed him to discover diversity and relief out of the game. That, in turn, has allowed him to develop balance and coordination to take onto the gridiron.

"To be honest, I really think I'm probably the first football player that actually can skate," Kelly said in the video interview.

As we celebrate Go Skateboarding Day on June 21, take a look at the 2018 sixth-round pick tearing it up at Westchester Skate Plaza during the offseason.
