Mark and Juanita are going into their second year as Season Ticket members. The couple attended each Rams home game with their season ticket group of 20 family and friends. The two are native Californians, who have lived in Torrance their whole lives. Mark and Juanita have two sons, who are obviously Rams fans as well. Mark grew up watching QB Roman Gabriel and the "Fearsome Foursome" and has been a fan ever since. Juanita became a Los Angeles Rams fan in early 1990s. The pair's other favorite teams are the Dodgers, Laker and Kings. They enjoy golfing, boating, camping, concerts, and being Rams Fans!
We would also like to thank the Rams organization and NFL for the trip/experience of a lifetime. We were treated so well and met many wonderful people. It was an honor to represent the Rams and can't wait for the season to start!

We were elated. We were following the news and us, as well as our friends, could not believe the great news.

Past player is Roman Gabriel and current player is Jared Goff
What made you want to buy season tickets?
As a long time fan, there was no question that we would get season tickets. As a season ticket holder, we feel like part of the Rams family and look forward to the new stadium. We also wanted to see NFL games live with our family and friends.

What was your favorite part?
It has been a ton of fun to tailgate with our family and friends. We look forward to spending quality time with family and friends and rooting for the Rams.
How was your experience at the Draft?
It was amazing, time of our life trip. We loved Philly, and the draft setting was unbelievable. It was great to meet the other STMs and learn about their stories and their teams. The NFL staff was great, they made sure we were always taken care of and we felt like VIPs every where we went. We got to sit in the second row at the draft and even though the Rams did not have a first round pick, they made sure we had a special experience. Seeing the draft live was so exciting, we enjoyed every aspect of it. The setting was unreal in and around the Museum. We loved the city of Philly and will return in the future. We enjoyed the accessibility of the NFL staff and their willingness to share interesting NFL info.
What was your favorite part about Draft?
This is a hard question, there were so many memorable moments. The "You make the Call" session was so interesting. Breakfast with the commissioner, dinner in the Art Museum, seeing where the Jerseys are printed and walking the red carpet with the Teams Hat and meeting the other STMs were all amazing, but my favorite would have to be walking the red carpet with the Rams Cap.
How was it to meet Commissioner?
It was an awesome experience. He is a kind and caring person. He is committed to continued improvement of the game. It was an honor, Mr Goodell is a genuine person who listened to what the STMs had to say.
Did you meet anyone else interesting?
Ron Jaworski was a real nice person. Learned a lot about officiating from Dean Blandino. We also met many interesting STMs, NFL staff & NFL executives, I don't remember all their names but we met many interesting people.
How'd you think the Draft went for the Rams?
I think it went well. I think with the new Coach and the new players , the Rams will be contenders. I'm very excited for the season to start.
