Top 15 Athletes Who You Didn't Know Had a Sibling in Pro Sports

Oftentimes in sports, family and heritage mean a lot in determining a player's talent and chances of making the big leagues. There is a reason why a lot of pro players in any sport have very athletic parents or parents that played professional sports as well. Of course, this isn’t always the case, but it seems to be fairly widespread. It’s not surprising to see professional players that have a father or mother that was involved in the sport as well.

And if parental lineage is so important in breeding star athletes, why are there so few siblings in pro sports? That simply breaks down to the fact that though siblings may both play pro sports, there is likely one that is more talented and that’s just how the world works, as some people are just blessed with more talent than others.

We all know the siblings in sports like the Williams sisters in tennis, the Manning brothers in the NFL and more. But there are many more athlete siblings out there in the world that no one really knows about, and that will be the focus of this list. This list will look at some of the most obscure athlete siblings of all time. Some played in the same sports as their famous siblings, and some played in different ones.

So read on and enjoy the Top 15 Athletes Who You Didn’t Know Had a Sibling in Pro Sports.
