Its name on a map is Pittsburgh, and to Steelers fans who remember the early 1990s it's sometimes referred to as Blitzburgh. And now, in the Steelers locker room, the city we call home can be known as 'Twins-burgh.'
The reason is simple. After the 2020 NFL Draft the Steelers now have three players on the roster who are one of a set of twins. Everyone knows about Maurkice Pouncey and his twin brother, Mike Pouncey. But he now is joined by two rookies who have twin brothers, fourth-round pick Kevin Dotson and seventh-round pick Carlos Davis, whose twin brother, Khalil Davis, was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
You don't have to ask Kevin Dotson to identify his best friend. It's a given. It's his twin brother, Kenny Dotson.
"That's the thing about it," said Dotson. "Having a twin, you are born with a best friend already. You have a head start on everybody else. Having that close bond, I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. He is the person I am closest to. Everything we have done we have done together.
