West Charlotte's Sibling Sensation

Posted: Updated:

West Charlotte has a serious competition going on, one between brother and sister.

The Porters are a year apart, together they push each other to work hard and chase dreams. So far, it's working. The two have never missed each other's games.

Older brother, Blake, signed with Hampton University on a full ride to play football in the fall. He was one of the captains of his team and held a 4.25 grade point average. The offensive lineman made all conference the past two years and is a part of the National Honor Society.

One year behind, Rachel is making heads turn as team captain of her basketball team for the past 3 years.  She made all conference as a freshman and sophomore, leads her team in scoring and has a 4.2 GPA. She's been nominated for the National Honor Society and is part of the West Charlotte Key Club.

Rachel will be the only Porter left at West Charlotte next year, something she hasn't done yet. She's considering going to Hampton University after she graduates to share in another school experience with Blake.
