    DUBUQUE, Iowa -- Itís very common to have brothers and sisters on the same team, but itís unusual to have two sets of siblings on one team.

    But thatís the case for the Dubuque Fighting Saints.

    The first pair of brothers is Jared and Alex Privitera. Jared was on last yearís Fighting Saints team, and Alex is in his first season. This is the first time they have played on the same team.

    The second set is Keegan and Jason Ford. Last year, Keegan spent the full season with the Fighting Saints, while Jason played just five games. This year, theyíve enjoyed a full season together.

    ďItís nice to be able to play with your brother, and we live together too,Ē Keegan Ford said. ďSo itís been a good year.Ē

    ďTo play at a high level like this with your brother, and to be able to share a lot of the experiences,Ē Jason said. ďNot many people can do that.Ē
