SAN ANTONIO - Neither of the NFL teams from Texas made the Super Bowl, but folks in San Antonio might have a reason to root for the Rams. One of Los Angeles's starting receivers is John Jay High School grad Josh Reynolds.

"The chance of anyone getting there is slim to none. To have a Jay grad get there is a big deal," said Jay football coach Gary Gutierrez. "The school is swelling with pride. The community is swelling with pride."
Reynolds graduated from Jay in 2013. From there he went to junior college, and then on to a great career at Texas A&M. In 2017, he was drafted in the fourth round by the Rams. In the NFC championship win over the Saints, Reynolds was the team's second leading receiver and rusher.
"He's one of those athletes you knew was bound for success. His work ethic, the way he carried himself - he's also a really talented athlete," Jay assistant principal Pete Prundeda said.
Reynolds isn't the only Ram with ties to the Alamo City. Byron P. Steele II High School grad Malcolm Brown is a running back who's out with an injury and G.W. Brackenridge High School alum Ramon Richards is a member of their practice squad.
