Three former San Antonio-area football players are on a Super Bowl team

SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) -You could call this trio the San Antonio Rams. Three members of the Los Angeles Rams played for San Antonio-area high school football teams.

One of them is #83, wide receiver Josh Reynolds. He’s a 2013 graduate of John Jay High School where he played football and basketball. Athletics director Gary Gutierrez says Reynolds also was on the track team.

“Our walls here at John Jay High school are swelling with pride,” said Gutierrez. “We have the largest Rams jersey on our Mustang.”

Reynolds played at Texas A&M and was drafted by Los Angeles in 2017.

“I definitely thought he had a chance because he had a great work ethic and he was an all-around athlete. He’s a really good kid, so it’s good to see him reaching his full potential,” said Gutierrez.

The coach told KTSA News he’s a Dallas Cowboys fan, but this week, he’ll be cheering for Reynolds and the Rams.

“He hasn’t forgotten where he came from. He comes back all the time and we’re real proud of him,” Gutierrez said.

It’s no surprise that Reynolds visits the campus. His mother, Michele Reynolds, is an assistant principal at John Jay.

Malcolm Brown, a graduate of Steele High School in Cibolo, is a running back for the Rams, but he’s on the injured reserve list. He’s been with the Rams since 2015 after playing for the University of Texas.

Ramon Richards graduated from Brackenridge High School in 2014. He played for Oklahoma State and was signed by the Rams last year. He’s a cornerback on the team’s practice squad.

The Rams will face the New England Patriots in the Super Bowl on Sunday.
