The Inertia

There’s absolutely no denying that Los Angeles Rams running back John Kelly can ride a skateboard. Really well, in fact. Especially for a guy that has spent years honing his craft on the gridiron (he says skating is harder). The Detroit native was a rookie last year when the Rams went to the Super Bowl. He was apparently inactive for most of 2018 but did get a few carries late in the season (27 for 74 yards) and played on special teams in the playoffs and Super Bowl. This summer will be huge for the running back out of Tennessee in terms of making the team again. But he always has skating, as he says. And on a board, Kelly isn’t just technically solid, he has some serious style.
