San Antonians watching Super Bowl LIII may spot a few familiar faces. Local sports fans can take pride in knowing the Alamo City will be well-represented during the biggest night in football.

In case you haven't kept up with the Los Angeles Rams (and why would you when most San Antonians are diehard Cowboys fans?), three players on the team's roster played football at San Antonio high schools.

The team's wide receiver, Josh Reynolds (#83), graduated from John Jay High School in 2013. He attended Texas A&M University and was drafted by the Rams in 2017.

Malcolm Brown (#34), a running back, played for Steele High School and later the University of Texas. He was signed as an undrafted free agent but suffered a season-ending injury during the regular season and will not be able to play in the Super Bowl.

Ramon Richards (#47) graduated from Brackenridge High School in 2014 and played for Oklahoma State through last year. The Rams signed him as an undrafted rookie free agent last May and he's currently on the team's practice squad as a cornerback.

The Rams face the New England Patriots during Super Bowl LIII on Sunday, February 3.
