THE PENNANT PLAYER PROFILE
By RICK PETERSON
Brothers Brooks and Brent Peavler are extremely close, and football has made them a lot closer ... literally.
Not only are the former Hayden stars the only brothers on the Washburn University roster, but they both play the same position, inside linebacker, with Brooks a senior starter and Brent one of his top backups.
It's a situation that works for the Peavlers.
"We get along really well,'' said Brooks a 6-foot-2, 235-pound six-year senior. "He's one of my best friends I'd say. We're are very competitive, always kind of talking smack on each other, but he knows and I know I've got two years on him, I've just got more experience, and I'll try to help him out whenever I can.
"He's pretty independant, but if he needs something he can come ask me for anything and especially in football, asking about plays and what not.''
