their com­pet­i­tive na­ture can some­times lead to ten­sion.

“When he’s get­ting the ball more than I am, then I’ll be kind of mad,” said Adrian Robin­son. “Then when I’m get­ting the ball more and get­ting more yards than him, he’ll be kind of mad on the side­lines.”

The ten­sion, how­ever, does some­times turn into mo­ti­va­tion.

“It’s pretty cool be­ing able to play with him, be­cause ev­ery time he makes a big play, he pushes me to do some­thing that’s al­most as good as what he did or even bet­ter,” said An­drae Robin­son. “It’s like he knows when I’m at my best, and I know when he’s at his best so we can al­ways push each other along.”

Edgar gets to wit­ness first­hand how they in­ter­act on the field with one an­other.

“They com­ple­ment each other well,” he said. “If one scores a touch­down, the other is like, ‘Well it’s be­cause I blocked.’ If one doesn’t get a touch­down, they blame the other one for not block- ing. I think they push each other, and at the end of the day, they are twins and they have that re­la­tion­ship that is in­sep­a­ra­ble. It’s a very com­pet­i­tive na­ture be­tween the two of them.”

While they have a lot in com­mon, they do dif­fer in their styles of play. While Adrian Robin­son is a more pow­er­ful, down­hill run­ner, An­drae Robin­son tends to be quicker in his move­ments and cuts. While Adrian en­joys the de­fen­sive side of the ball, An­drae would rather just run the ball.

The twins’ suc­cess doesn’t just stop on the field. Ac­cord­ing to Edgar, they’re also su­per­stars in the class­room, get­ting good grades and tak­ing ad­vanced classes. Their grades cou­pled with their tal­ent could end up tak­ing them a very long way.

“With their man­ners and the way they carry them­selves, com­bined with their ath­letic abil­ity, I think the sky is the limit,” Edgar said. “They are on the radar of some big time col­lege pro­grams al­ready, and if they can con­tinue to just de­velop phys­i­cally, men­tally and so­cially, I think they have a very bright fu­ture ahead of them.”
