HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Brothers Evan and Grant Johnson signed their National Letters of Intent to continue their athletic careers at the college level. Evan signed to play football Nebraska Wesleyan while Grant signed at Drury University to swim.
Growing up, Evan and Grant continually motivated each other in sports and wanted to share this moment together.
"You really don't want to let your brother beat you in anything you do. So, that kind of fueled the competition," Evan said. "Even though we're really competitive at the same time we have the utmost respect for each other. At the end of the day, we're brother, we're family. So it's really special."
"Ultimately, everything is super competitive when we were growing up, it's made everything a lot better for us in the long run in terms of sports," Grant said.
Both Evan and Grant will go to their respective universities this summer.
