Brothers in arms

Clippers Jake and Dan Baribeault take on Whittier Tech in tonight's game

(Continued)

Jake has been playing varsity since his junior year while Dan has been helping the team from the first game of the season when he came off the bench against undefeated North Reading.

“I really didn’t know what to expect,” Dan says of playing varsity as a freshman. “I played against some big guys before in AAU and stuff, but I never really played with my brother or anyone else in his grade in a normal game. But the coach doesn’t treat me like I’m a freshman. He holds me to the same standards as (the rest.)”

Whatever tonight’s outcome, these brothers know they have only just begun a bond that will be with them forever.

“It’s good to know that this isn’t the end,” Jake says. “I’m going to be able to watch him for the next three years. And after that, we’ll always be able to talk about it, we’ll always be able to go outside in the backyard and play.”
