Only four years and three months after playing his last game at Oak Park High School, John Kelly will be playing for Los Angeles in the national championship football game today (Feb. 3, 2019). Kelly is a running back for the LA team and, although be may not be in the starting line-up, he is the only player on either team who has graduated from a Michigan high school (Oak Park, 2014).
John Kelly is no stranger to playing behind starters. In high school and college, he was the back-up running back and eventually worked his way to starter at both institutions. Although he is playing behind superstar running back Todd Gurley II, it would be no surprise if Kelly makes an appearance in the big game in a big way.
Good luck John Kelly!
