Arl. Martin twins sticking together at Oregon
By Randy Jennings
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Twin brothers Stephen and Eric Amoako made it official, signing letters of intent with Oregon on Wednesday.
The twins finished up careers in the defensive backfield for Arlington Martin in the fall.
“It’s probably a one in a million shot for us to get scholarships to the same school playing the same position,’’ said Eric (5-foot-11, 195), the younger of the two. “We’ve been committed to Oregon for seven months, but it is a big deal to get things done officially.’’
A large contingent of family from Mississippi and Alabama attended the ceremony in support.
“It may be a year or two before we have a chance to see them again,’’ said Stephen (6-foot, 190). "Getting this day over with is more relief than anything.''
