OK. The Los Angeles Rams are feeling a lot of love these days. After departing St. Louis this offseason, the Rams have gone full steam ahead to make the Los Angeles marketplace the place to be when it comes to NFL football.
The team has a state-of-the-art football/wonderland football stadium being erected in Inglewood. The franchise is being featured on HBO’s “Hard Knocks,” during this year’s training camp session.
Quarterback Jared Goff becomes the toast of the town when the Rams take him as the No. overall selection as the 2016 NFL Draft. The NFL recently granted the LA Region the Super Bowl in 2021.
With the team really trying to get engaged with the Los Angeles community with many well-planned activities such as the Los Angeles Rams All-Access event (Los Angeles Coliseum) that was sponsored by the Los Angeles Sports & Entertainment Commission (LASEC), it looks as though the honeymoon the franchise has with local fans is still going sweet.
Through the artistic lens of photographer Astrud Reed, we go behind the scenes to capture some of that rapport between the fans and the Rams.
