Are the Martinez Brothers the Next Manning Brothers?

Both Drake and Taylor are crazy talented football players. Both will see action this weekend.

OCVarsity.com has a nice profile piece on Drake and Taylor Martinez, the football-playing brothers who could wind up becoming the next Peyton and Eli Manning, the way their talents seem to be taking them.

Drake, you might know, is Laguna Beach High's current star running back and safety, who, in last week's season-opener against Bolsa Grande, shattered an LBHS record by scoring five touchdowns ... in just the first half.

His brother Taylor Martinez quarterbacks the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Last week against Southern Miss, Taylor scored five touchdowns of his own.

Taylor and his Huskers are in SoCal this week, set to do battle on Saturday against UCLA at the Rose Bowl. Meanwhile, Drake goes up against University tonight, Friday, in the first home game of the season for the Breakers.

Patch is covering the University game tonight, and we'll have the story and photos posted for you as soon as we're able.
