Seeing double Sunday? Yes! Twins will be playing in Super Bowl 53.
Devin and Jason McCourty, former St. Joseph Regional and Rutgers stars, are both members of the New England Patriots. The brothers tragically lost their father to a heart attack when they were three-years-old and were raised by their mother, Phyllis Harrell, who's their biggest fan. She talks about their journey from little boys playing baskeball to earning college football scholarships to take the burden off their mom. And now BOTH are in the Super Bowl! (See video below)
So is this a big deal? Twins on a team? Twins at the Super Bowl?
Yes! The McCourty's are the first set of twins to play in a Super Bowl and also the first twin teammates in the NFL since 1926.
