Stratford twins looking for double the gold in Madison

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Take a close look at the wrestling mats at Stratford High School, and you might think you're seeing double.

But you don't need to get your eyes checked. The pair of senior wrestlers are the Dennee brothers--and twins.

"We've been wrestling with each other for 14 years now, so it's just another teammate to me, another person to practice with, to push you, but it's cool it's your twin brother," said Devin.

"As a twin it's always somebody there to push you at practice, how long we've been wrestling together. He's a good practice partner," added Trevor.

But these twins aren't just a fun novelty to talk about. They are legit wrestlers.

Trevor is a defending state champ, and the number one ranked wrestler at 195 in Division 3.

"We're at where we're at now, so it's just time to wrestle," he said.

And Devin, who finished fourth at state last year, is also the top ranked wrestler in his weight class.

"I usually tell myself there's nobody better than me, which obviously there is. But you just go out there and wrestle everything you got. If you lose you lose," Devin said.

Wrestling is a brotherhood. For these two, it's a literal one. But now they'll join the rest of their family, looking to bring home some hardware.

"We've both pushed each other all season long," Trevor said. "We've put in the time, we've put in the effort along the season, and we know that we're where we need to be, so at this point, it's just going out and wrestling."

The Dennee twins will wrestle their first matches at the state meet Friday morning.
