Twin Brothers from Louisiana Each Earn $1.3 Million in Academic Scholarships


May 14, 2019

Twin brothers, Brin and Nial Wilson are mirroring one another in more than just looks. The two seniors have each earned over $1.3 million in academic scholarships. 

According to KSLA, Brin’s scholarships total $1,335,788 while Nial’s number thus far is close to $1.4 million at $1,393,012. They also hold acceptance letters from numerous colleges including Morehouse College, St. John’s University, Loyola University and Louisiana Tech University.

In addition to the scholarships that are based solely on their academic achievements, the two have also received athletic scholarships to play football.


The brothers have excelled on the field just as much as they’ve succeeded in the classroom. They were honored as Top 2019 Prospect by Louisiana Football Magazine & TV, Offense-Defense All-American Bowl selections in Daytona Florida and Blue-Grey All-American Bowl Selections in Houston, Texas.

The two are graduating from Captain Shreve High School in the spring and will pursue degrees in civil engineering this fall.



While it is unclear which university they’ll choose, figuring out how to fund it is one thing the dynamic duo won’t have to worry about.

Congratulations Brin, Nial and to the village who helped you get here!
