Twin brothers Jordan and Julian Cuthbertson have always been together, ever since the day they were born, Julian just two minutes ahead of Jordan.

So it seemed appropriate that the Havelock High seniors would each recover a fumble on Senior Night as the Rams defeated Swansboro 57-0 Friday at Havelock High.

The significance of playing in their final regular-season home games wasn’t lost on the two brothers.

“It was kind of sad at first,” Jordan said. “But, the team played great and we came away with a win, so it’s not sad anymore.”

Julian described an emotional locker room when head coach Jim Bob Bryant called up the seniors before the game.

“It kind of got to us a little bit but we kept our composure and came out here and did what we had to do,” he said.

On the season, Julian Cuthbertson has 42 tackles, three pass breakups and a forced fumble from his safety position to go along with one catch for 10 yards on offense.
