MORGAN -- High school football is a family affair in Morgan Utah, and you can see it not by looking at the stands, but on the roster.
Morgan High School's football team has 13 sets of brothers.
As part of our KSL Schools project, we asked schools to send us their success stories. The student body officers at Morgan sent us a fun compilation of brotherly love.
"We're the Largents. I'm M Large. And I'm G Large. And I love living in his shadow. And I love him living in my shadow," said Matt and Garrett Largent.
The Davis brothers, Chase and Gabe, introduced themselves with a chest bump.
"We like football," said Jaden and Dakota Martin.
The Saunders and Toomer brothers share a special handshake.
Clearly, the brothers were having a good time after practice showing off their sibling rivalry, as demonstrated in a light-hearted shoving match by the Skinner brothers and the tackle made by the Prochnow brothers.
Most of the players see benefits from their brotherhood.
Kij Bennnett said, "I enjoy Jaran on the team because he's a good person to be around."
The Baltazar brothers like the fact that they can beat up on each other without getting in trouble.
If there are any downsides, the moms in the stands might point to their grocery bills. We talked to a few of them to find out what it takes to feed these big boys. Some of these moms are feeding 500 pounds of teenager, practicing in two-a-days.
Cheryl Prochnow said, "I hit the grocery store and Sam's club about every other week to buy Gatorade, water, flavored water, pasta, cereal, etc., by the case. The bill every two weeks is around $500."
Here are some of the claims to eating fame in the other brothers' households.
- The Balthazars go through a gallon of milk a day.
- The Saunders eat a box of cereal in one sitting.
- The Davis boys wolf down a loaf of bread each day.
- For the Carters, a Subway foot-long is a snack.
These moms told us they're constantly cooking, but they love having big and little brothers playing on the same team and looking out for each other.
So, mass quantities of beef and carbs are a small price to pay for brotherly love.
Special thanks to the Prochnow family for sending in their school story and Morgan High for the video. Submit your school success stories at KSL Schools.
