ALLEN, Texas — Oftentimes a football team is referred to as a brotherhood. The players spend so much time together their connection on and off the field is brotherly. At Allen High School, there’s a brotherhood inside the brotherhood--meet the Green twins.

Bryson and Blaine Green are so close they even play the same position. Both are the top wide receivers for the Eagles.
“It’s fun having a person who’s always there to talk about plays you had in the game, or just talk about life with,” said Bryson Green.
“If someone hits [Bryson] wrong, I’m going to come up and stand for him,” said Blaine Green. “Same thing with basketball, football. Any situation we always got each other’s back.”
The brotherly love is real but the competitiveness between the two is even more apparent.
“He got Blocker of the Week this week and I’m like man, I should’ve gotten Blocker of the Week. I’m not going to let him do something better than me,” said Blaine Green. “That’s just where it originates from. We are going to be competing for the best spot and that’s just the way it is.”
A lot of people can relate to sibling rivalries, but not everyone can understand what it’s like to have a sibling so close in age.
“It’s a crazy experience just because you are with each other 24/7,” said Bryson Green.
The Green twins have been inseparable since birth, elementary school, little league, high school, and believe it or not, college now too. Bryson and Blaine Green are a package deal--both received scholarships and committed to Oklahoma State University.
“It was never really an option for us to go separate ways,” said Blaine Green. “Every offer we got and every interest we got was together.”
So for another four years, they’ll be teammates and naturally roommates too, so it’s a good thing they've had experience with both.
“We used to share a room. Up until freshman year when we got a new house. Other than that, we’ve been in the same room. Not bunk beds. Just twin beds next to each other,” said Bryson Green.
The Green brotherhood bond will live on in Stillwater and it’s expected to live everywhere else beyond that.
