Three little brothers played big in Bishop Luers' 35-21 semistate win over Bremen on Friday.
First, there was junior Jaylon Smith, who ran for 107 yards and two touchdowns. Smith's big brother, Rod, is a former Harding standout, the SAC's all-time leading rusher and a sophomore running back at Ohio State.
Second, there was junior Kendrick Mullen, whose 61-yard fumble recovery and touchdown gave the Knights a 28-14 lead in the fourth quarter against the Lions. Mullen's big brother is Kenny, a constant figure at the state finals in football and basketball in his four years at Luers, and is a freshman defensive back at Indiana University.
Third, there was junior Andrew Spencer, who intercepted a pass and returned it 30 yards for the Knights' final score of the night and a 35-14 advantage. Spencer has two big brothers, Adrien won a 2A state title in 2007 and is a senior defensive back on the Bowling Green football team, and Anthony won two state titles in the late 1990s and early 2000s, starred at Purdue and is currently a linebacker for the Dallas Cowboys.
