One Direction played a concert Wednesday night at the Edward Jones Dome, home of the Rams, and Harry Styles paid tribute to the most talked-about athlete in St. Louis, Michael Sam.

Sam, who is vying to become the first openly gay man to play in an NFL regular-season game, expressed his appreciation.
Several of the One Direction fans in attendance also enjoyed the gesture, although it might be fair to assume many of them would have swooned if Styles had donned a Richie Incognito Rams throwback.
HARRY STYLES IS WEARING A MICHAEL SAM JERSEY FOR THE ENCORE OMG OMG
