“Football is natural, skateboarding is more skilled. I had to learn that. It was a lot of time and dedication. That’s what people don’t realize.”
When I saw this headline I was expecting some Lil Wayne or Justin Beiber type entry level skating but 22-year-old LA Rams running back John Kelly can really get after it (dropped a 14 stair with no grip tape).
John grew up in skating in inner city Detroit and hopes to give back to the skate scene that he was brought up in. Great story of a multi-sport athlete that thrives in both organized and creative disciplines:
