Burton brothers

The Burton High School football program has the unique designation of carrying 10 brothers among its ranks this season. Pictured are, back row, Jackson Kalkhake, twins Weston and Waylon Hinze, Tucker Saunders, DeMarcus Wilson and Cash Callahan. The younger brothers, front row, from left, are Kaiden Kalkhake, Eli Saunders, Rodney Wilson and Carter Callahan.

The word “family” gets thrown around often in sports, but for the Burton High School football team, it isn’t hyperbole.

With five sets of brothers on their roster, the playoff-bound Panthers are not only a brotherhood by name, but also by DNA.
