(Greg Knight | The GAZETTE)Friday, June 13, 2014 - 2:30 p.m. - For twins Aaron and Aanthony Lerma, who will be entering their senior year at Mariposa County High School in September, a special, unique language exists—a language combining brotherly love and the brutal power of Mariposa football on the gridiron of Pioneer Market Grizzly Stadium.

Aaron, the returning starter at quarterback for the Griz, is coming off a 2013 season that saw him pass for 1,399 yards and complete just more than half of his 177 pass attempts for 13 touchdowns. His rushing game was spot-on as well, racking up 271 yards on the ground for five trips to the endzone.

Aanthony, a lineman on the defensive side of the ball, recorded 22 tackles in 2013, with 10 of those hits coming solo. He also had two fumble recoveries for the Grizzlies.
