Family first. The Hochevar family shares what it was like to grow up in an athletic family as well as the benefits or pressures that might come with it. Learn which brother built a baseball mound when he was just a kid, and how often the family would sneak into the high school gym to play pickup basketball.
The Hochevar family demonstrates that they are more than simply five athletes that grew up together, but rather a loving family that works in unison. Whether they be bound by love of sport, faith, or love of each other, this family sticks together.
