Taylor Allderdice High School in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania has produced the likes of Pro Football Hall of Famer Curtis Martin, legendary Pittsburgh Steelers commentator and the creator of the Terrible Towel Myron Cope, and rappers Mac Miller and Wiz Khalifa. However, now it is the school’s basketball team that is generating headlines.

The school has been overcome with “Twinsanity,” which we will explain.

Despite the fact that on average only one in thirty births is a pair of twins, Taylor Allderdice High School has four sets of twin brothers on their basketball team. The roster includes sophomores Tim and James Jackson, juniors Kenny and Keith Robinson and seniors Davaughn and Javaughn Moultrie and Juwan and Jalen Ledbetter.

You have to feel bad for Dragons head coach Buddy Valinsky.

“With the Moultries, Javaughn is a lefty. So, thank God for that,” Valinsky told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “I’m starting to tell the Robinsons apart. But the Jacksons, I can’t tell the difference between them unless I see their uniform numbers. They’re bookends. They do everything alike. They even play alike.”

It may seem like a hassle, but Valinsky joked that the silver lining is there are fewer parents to deal with.

With the team’s impressive chemistry, they were able to get off to a 10-2 start to the season. This may be making other schools around the nation jealous that their school has not yet been affected by “Twinsanity.”
