The hardest working teammate because we’ve spent countless years competing against each other.   His athletic ability is unmatched by any of the opponents I have faced in the season so just going against him all off-season makes the season a little easier.  Competition with other people ends but when you’re competing with your brother who you live with it never ends because we literally compete at everything no matter what it is.
