CARBONDALE-- As one of seven kids, Jeneva and Mika'il McCall grew up in an ultra-competitive household. Their dad was a former heavyweight boxing champion of the world and instilled in them toughness and hard work.

Jeneva wrapped up a national champion and All-American throwing career at the Olympic trials this summer, but her role in bringing younger brother Mika'il to Carbondale and the Saluki football team was huge.

The pair see each other several times a week and say they admire each other now, even though Jeneva used to bully and beat Mika'il up as young children.
