Michael and Ramon are not only brothers, they are also sophomores and roommates together at the college of New Jersey. They are going to play flag football for team New Jersey in this years Special Olympic Games. Both of them have specific positions on the field.

Michael is mainly on offense and spoke about how he loves what he does.

"I like to catch the ball and I like to score a touchdown and I like to have fun," he said.

While Ramon on the other hand, plays the defensive line and explained his duties on the field.

"I play defense, I play the corner-back, which I stay with the receivers and let them catch the ball," he said.

These twins love playing flag football, especially when they catch the ball, make touchdowns and get to do the "touchdown dance", just like Santonio Holmes. Michael gives his incite on their role models in football.

"The Jets! We like the New York Jets because we go to every home game for the New York Jets so we got season tickets!" he said.

The twins have been training very hard and have high hopes coming into the Special Olympics. Keep up the good work boys!
