LAUREL HILL — There is a definite family resemblance between Laurel Hill boys basketball players Tommy and Tamaria Calloway. It’s evident in their physical appearance and the way they play basketball.

Tommy, a senior, and Tamaria, a junior, give the Hoboes a strong one-two punch at guard on both ends of the floor. On any given night, the brothers will top Laurel Hill’s scoring chart as they continue the family tradition their older brother Travon, a 2012 Laurel Hill graduate, began.

Tommy and Tamaria said it’s fun playing with their siblings and enjoying instincts the brothers often share on the floor.

“It’s been really good because we’ve been able to do it all together,” Tommy said. “We help each other rather than us trying to do it all alone. And to play as a team, we can pull for each other.

“Sometimes, I can just feel where my brother is without looking. We can feel each other wherever we are on the court; we can feel exactly where each other is … so if we are in trouble, we can get each other the ball.”

Tamaria, the youngest and tallest of the three brothers, appreciates playing with his older brothers.
