All in the Family

Posted: September 9, 2010 by NattieLiz in Joseph Fauria, NCAA Basketball, NCAA Football, New England Patriots, UCLA

 We have all heard it: Its in the genes. Weather you wish you were taller, thinner, faster, stronger, Dye your hair black or blonde… your original genetics make up who you really are. For these  up and coming stars, its true that talent runs through their blood!

Seth and Stephen Curry:

Dell Curry is a former NBA player that happen to father not only one, but two basketball stars. Stephen Curry who is one of Golden State’s rising stars, has a younger brother Seth, that is making his way up the basketball ranks as well. Seth, 20, is a 6’1 guard that currently plays for DUKE. He was riding the bench last year, but it seems he is ready for a break out year as one of Coach K’s starting five.

Joseph and Christian Fauria:

Christian Fauria, TE, mostly known for his Super Bowl wins with the New England Patriots had a long 13 season NFL career. Even with numerous injuries, Fauria stuck it out to win two Super Bowls  in his Career. He is now analysing college football on, which is some what interesting, since his 6’7 nephew Joseph Fauria is making his own history playing in the same TE position at UCLA. Joseph Fauria will be a huge target for Kevin Prince this season and should have a break out year.

DaVaris and Phillip Daniels:

Phillip Daniels is known for being a 14 year NFL vet and the Redskins Defensive End, but he is now also known as the proud father of a 17 year old “ManChild”. DaVaris Daniels is a 6’2 wide out that can run a 4.5  40.  He is looking at going to Miami or Notre Dame  to continue his football career next year. Dad’s alma mater, Georgia is also in the top running.

Jacquizz and James Rodgers:

Oregon State has a great combo in a pair of football playing brothers. Jacquizz Rodgers is a junior running back whom the Beavers are touting as a 2010 Heisman Trophy candidate. He led the Beavers with 1,440 rushing yards, 522 receiving yards and 22 touchdowns last season.  His brother, James Rodgers, is a senior wide receiver whom the Beavers are touting as a 2010 All-America candidate. He caught 91 passes for 1,034 yards and nine touchdowns last season.  I would say those are some great genes! and it must be a blast to play side by side with your brother.
