“I think that is a big part of our chemistry, really, that we are good friends,” he said. “It's hard to explain. We are so close we've learned each other's tendencies. Over time, we have just built that chemistry and trust.”
On defense, Kilborn is the starting free safety and Barnes is a cornerback. Brooks wants to play defense too, but Turner won't let him.
“I don't need my quarterback to play defense,” Turner said. “I need my quarterback to play quarterback.”
Kilborn also is the deep snapper for Brooks, who punts for the Saints as well.
“They are all exceptional athletes, not only in football, but in every sport they play,” Turner said.
Brooks is a top-notch baseball pitcher. Barnes plays basketball, soccer and has a 4 handicap in golf.
“He is the most athletic kid at OCS,” Kilborn said of Barnes. “He has been that kid who is good at everything ever since he was little.”
Kilborn's first love is basketball and is the starting point guard for the Saints.
“I could see him playing basketball in college,” Turner said. “He is a gamer. He is a very, very competitive.”
OCS' likely will need an outstanding game from its triplets to keep up with high-scoring Frederick on Friday night.
The Bombers (13-0) are the second highest scoring team in the state, only behind Vian, and have scored more than 70 points five times this season.
But the Saints can score, too, averaging 40 points a game.
“We can score on anybody,” Kilborn said.
