Harry Styles may be a stereotypical boy-bander, but he has also shown his sincere love for football in the past — including his passion for Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.

But Styles took his love of football and made a statement with it at a recent concert. The St. Louis Rams recently drafted the first openly gay NFL player, Michael Sam, making football history. According to MTV, as One Direction took the stage in St. Louis, Styles came out in a Sam jersey.

Styles isn't alone in his fashion choices or his support for the Rams. Sam’s jersey is the top-selling jersey among all other rookies this year — and you can guarantee that plenty of One Directioners will be buying it from here on out.

Sam showed his thanks for the honor from Styles in a tweet on Wednesday.
