The Riddle brothers do everything together. Besides having the same parents, both play varsity quarterback. Scott, a sophomore, and Greg, a junior, battle for and play the same position and many have wondered what it’s like on and off the field for the brothers.

“Me and Greg are getting closer,” Scott said. “We used to fight a lot about just about anything but now we don’t really fight as much.”

Knowing that Scott and Greg fight like other brothers at home, the next question for most is, what it’s like on the field between them as teammates.

“It’s pretty cool to be playing with my brother,” Scott said. “We get a lot of good bonding time since we spend basically all summer together at practice and weights. It is a little competitive between us though. Greg has the starting spot, and obviously, I want to start, but I do whatever I can to help Greg get better and achieve what he wants to achieve.”

Being the younger brother in the wings seem natural, but being the older brother being chased must be a challenge.

“I like playing with Scott out on the field,” Greg said. “It’s cool to be playing with my little brother, he still annoys me every once in a while but, I just want to help him improve and maybe teach him some things.”

While it’s expected that two brothers would be competitive others on the team find it refreshing to know that they just want each other to get better and that they’re growing closer. What outsiders see as a battle is just the opposite.

“I think playing on the same team together has brought us closer together and I think that may be why we don’t fight as much,” Scott said. “Since I see him all the time now I feel like I know a lot more about him and I feel like we are way closer now because of football.”

Society emphasizes the stereotype that little brothers are annoying, the Riddle brothers defy that notion.        

“Usually after the game on Fridays we all go hang out so I think me and Scott’s relationship has grown a lot.” Greg said.

Football brought the two brothers closer together. When Greg (#1)  is out on the field tonight against BV North, look to the sideline. The person cheering him on is probably his brother, Scott (#2).
