The NFL player comes from a very athletic family and his family has always been very supportive of his career choice.

Donna was a track and field athlete, while her brother served as a defensive tackle at Purdue University. Likewise, her father had a tremendous collegiate football career at Ohio University.

Besides that, Ed also played high school football and rugby back in his days. As a result, the parents were very keen on signing Jason and Travis into various sports programs. 

Eventually, the siblings excelled at sports, and the Kelce house started piling up with awards and trophies.

Nature

Travis Kelce’s brother was laid back and carefree. Once his teammates encouraged him to do a dumpster dive, he immediately agreed, as he never backed away from a challenge. 

The Eagles center dived into the trash can in the middle of the school cafeteria, resulting in a hysterical laugh from students. He got detention for it, but even the vice principal had a good laugh.

Unlike his brother, Jason often got in trouble at school and was usually suspended for his actions. As per his father, he was suspended at least once per year in elementary school for fighting. 

Sibling Relationship

The Eagles center is two years older than his younger brother, Travis, and they have been very close since the beginning and extremely competitive. 

According to their parents, they were also somehow opposites of each other. While Jason did not care about other people’s opinions, Travis was very concerned about how others perceived him. 

Travis was well dressed, rarely got in trouble at school, and even if he did, he would usually talk his way out of suspension.

The siblings love each other dearly and constantly look out for one another. Travis looks up to his older brother a lot. 

Once, the brothers fight ended up spilling dinner and accidentally knocking their dad down. Ed initially pretended to be hurt so his sons would stop fighting and call a truce.

The Kansas City Chiefs drafted Travis Kelce as the 63 pick overall in the 2013 NFL Draft.

With the Chiefs, Travis plays as the tight end and has won the 2020 Super Bowl Championship.

Like his older brother, Travis played in college for the Cincinnati Bearcats. However, in 2010, he was suspended after testing positive for marijuana for the entire season. 

Education

Jason Kelce went to Cleveland Heights High School, where he played football and hockey.

After his return in the 2013 season, he had an outstanding performance and helped the team reach the 2013 playoffs.
