Sports is often a family business. We’ve seen the sports gene at work in the Manning, Earnhardt, Hull, Griffey, and Andretti families. We’ve even seen families like the Hills (Calvin and Grant), Larkins (Barry and Shane), Halls (swimmers Gary Sr. and Gary Jr.), and Joneses (Popeye and Seth) where junior has excelled in a different way than dad.
In all of those families a father passed down his love of sport and athletic prowess to his son. But sometimes the athletic talents and passions come from the other side of the family.
