Twin Brothers Help Revive South High Football

Saturday, November 17, 2012

 

Dillon has become one of the best defensive linemen in Central Mass this season.

South High football is enjoying a bit of a comeback year, and the Agyei twin brothers have helped lead the Colonel turn around.

While Dillon and Darwin are twins, you would be hard-pressed to find the resemblances. Dillon is a powerful defensive lineman that has made life miserable for opposing ball carriers, while Darwin is a versatile athlete that has made a successful transition to quarterback this season.

"I played receiver last year, but now I'm at quarterback and I love it," Darwin said. "I get to be a leader and make plays for my team. I'm just trying to make plays."

"I can bench press 450 (lbs.) like five times," Dillon said. "I've been working hard in the off-season every night. All those nights of hard work paid off."

But stature is not the only difference between these fraternal twins. Thanks to being born one minutes apart- Dillon was born at 11:59 pm on November 10th, with Dillon following at midnight on the 11th- the twins don't even share the same birthday. But they do share in some friendly competition on the practice field, even if the positions they play are so different.

"Sometimes we count who makes the most plays in practice," Dillon said. "Or sometimes we do pushup contests… I always win."

"I got longer arms, so pushups are kind of hard for me," Darwin added with a chuckle.

Darwin is in his first year playing quarterback for the Colonels this season.

South is now 4-6 heading into its season-ending rivalry game against North, a three-game improvement from last season, and coach Jerry Snay says the Agyei brothers have set an example for younger players in the program.

"These guys aren't really the vocal kind of leaders, and that's just not really in their nature or background," Snay said. "We use them as an example to the young guys for how they carry themselves, not by what they say. These guys are respectful, hard working, and here every day, so it shows the younger guys that I'm not impressed with what they say, I'm going to judge them off their actions."

Both brothers know that a win over North would make it a successful season for the Colonels, and with both of them playing offense and defense, they will certainly have a large hand in deciding the outcome.

"We're 4-6 right now, and 5-6 sounds a lot better than 4-7," Dillon said. "It's a big turn around from last year, though."

While each Agyei has enjoyed a breakout season this year, they are still hoping to gain some experience before beginning the college recruiting process. They both hope to enroll in Worcester Academy for a post grad year next year, and see where football and academics can take them from there.

South will face North in their annual rivalry game this Wednesday at 6 pm. The game will be played at Foley Stadium.
