Football: Newbury Park's Okun brothers are helping each other
There's an interesting dynamic developing at Newbury Park High, where the Okun brothers, Ben and Zach, will be key players for the football team.
Ben is the senior quarterback. Zach is the 6-foot-4, 300-pound sophomore right tackle entrusted with helping protect the quarterback.
And what happens if the younger brother allows someone to sack the older brother?
"That's a great question," Newbury Park assistant coach Doug Dagan said. "They're actually good friends."
Ben is only 6-feet, so if any defensive lineman decides to engage in a cheap shot, they'd better be prepared to deal with a big, powerful younger brother coming to the rescue this fall.
