Sibling Athletes

During the National Championship game, two brothers were playing against each other. Not too many people know that.

Kris Jenkins of the Villanova Wildcats and Nate Britt of UNC are brothers. When Jenkins was young, his mother made the ultimate decision. She gave her son to the Britt family to be adopted because she knew she could not provide him with the life he deserved. Now, he’s a National Champion.

That story made me want to share some of the other siblings in the sports world you may or may not know about.
