Five things you need to know about Kentrell Brothers


There are not twin brothers on the Missouri team like I initially thought. Kentrell’s last name is Brothers and it is one person. Now that’s settled, here are five interesting things about Kentrell Brothers…

Brothers leads the nation in tackles

Brothers is a tackling machine. The senior linebacker leads the nation with 42 tackles, including three for a loss. Brothers is also fourth in the nation in solo tackles with 24. On top of all that, Brothers recorded a career-high 16 tackles in Missouri’s season opener against Southeast Missouri State.

Brothers loves reading to kids

After going through most of Brothers’ social media, I’ve come to the conclusion that I can’t dislike him. One things that I learned is that Brothers loves to read to grade school kids. Brothers has posted multiple pictures of him reading to children at different schools around Missouri. How can you dislike someone who reads to children? Adorable.


One of Brothers’ hobbies includes big game hunting

According to Missouri’s athletic page, one of Brothers’ hobbies includes large game hunting. I looked everyone for a picture or article to back this statement up, but I could not find anything. But here it the statement on Missouri’s page…

Brothers is very ticklish

Former Missouri quarterback, James Franklin, revealed that Brothers is very ticklish in an interview with Mizzou Football Tiger Talk. “One time he said if you ever want him to do anything or take something from him, all you have to do is tickle him and he’ll give in,” Franklin said. So can someone tickle Brothers before the game to get him to play bad?

Brothers accidentally started a rumor that he was kicked off the team

Through a series of tweets Brothers sent out over the summer, a rumor started circulating that Brothers was kicked off the team. The tweets were a reaction to Brothers not being selected to attend the SEC Media Days. The tweets were a little too bitter for some Missouri fans that took it the wrong way.

The fact that Brothers was the one who started the rumor made me laugh a little.
