Twin Territory (Drew & Dylan Kreutzfeldt)



Bookmark and Share

Drew and Dylan Kreutzfeldt are usually the two best players out there, regardless of the sport.  The seniors from Chester are twins, and they've been winning together for years.  Just ask Eric Knight, who coaches both basketball and football.

"I speak for the rest of the coaches at Chester," said Knight.  "We are definitely fortunate to have those two athletes with us through football, through basketball, through track for the last four or five years."

You'd be hard pressed to find a more prolific pair of football teammates than the Kreutzfeldts.  Quarterback Drew just wrapped up a career in which he threw for 5,752 yards, ran for 3,532 and scored 110 touchdowns.  Running back Dylan finished with 3,548 rushing yards, 1,003 receiving yards and nearly 50 touchdowns.  They both also starred on defense.

"It was hard to gameplan," said Drew.  "We've got Dylan running the ball, me throwing the ball.  It was fun, but it made everything easier having him around for all these years."

"We do all kinds of stuff together," said Dylan.  "Success together, we fail together.  Everything's together with us."

Don't be fooled though.  Just like any pair of siblings, these two have a healthy rivalry.

"We're so competitive we get after it in a game of checkers," said Drew.

"We like to jaw-jack at each other," said Dylan.  "We always have fun with it too.  If I drop 20 and he's gonna drop five, I'm gonna let him hear about it."

Both Kreutzfeldts contribute on the basketball court, but Drew has the upper hand in that sport.  He averaged nearly 18 points per game last year.

It's in football where they both shine though.  And it's in football where they will both continue their athletic careers.  Dylan has verbally committed to Northern State, while Drew has committed to SDSU.

"We've been putting up with each other for 18 years and everything's always mutual," said Dylan.  "Not one of us can do good without the other one doing good also."

"Whether it's checkers or basketball or a game of pick-up, we push each other and I think that's a big reason why we succeed," said Drew.

For the first time the Kreutzfeldts won't be on the same team, but their bond will not be broken.
