Sibling Rivalry

by Ryan Peterson

Every Saturday, Diboll's Ketaraus Stanton can turn on the television and catch his brothers in action.  He'll hear the play by play, 'Touchdown Jorvorskie Lane.'  Change the channel, 'Touchdown Jermichael Finley.'

You'd think baby brother would be impressed.

"No," Stanton says.  "I've seen it before."

It's tough to earn respect between these brothers.  Finley is a game breaking tight end at Texas.  Lane is closing in on Texas A&M's all time touchdown record.

"Every game when I was in pee wee, every game I'd do well," Stanton says.  "They'd (Lane and Finley) say you did alright. But they never pumped my head up."

They may want to pat their little bro on the back for his senior season.   Stanton has gained nearly 1,800 yards in nine games.   He leads the Lumberjacks with 21 touchdowns.  Now Stanton believes he's the most talented member of the family.

"As far as catching, my brother Jermichael can do better," Stanton says.  "But Jorvorskie? No, nothing."

"I guess he's kind of in between those two guys with Jorvorskie and Jermichael," Diboll Head Coach Gary Martel says.  "They've got they're niche and I pray he creates his own."

Stanton is being recruited by Big XII school's and could one day face his brothers.  He has just one goal.

"Fill in their shoes," Stanton says.  "Do better."
