While everyone is familiar with Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs, his brothers who are following in his footsteps have received fame as well. Stefon Diggs is the oldest of four siblings who came to prominence after being picked by the Minnesota Vikings and eventually traded to the Bills.
Darez Diggs is also known as Mar’Sean Diggs, was a defensive end at Morgan State University. He then changed directions and headed to Alabama to play safety. In 2018, he was picked by the Minnesota Vikings and attended their rookie camp before being released. He also joined the Los Angeles Wildcats XFL squad as a safety in 2020 and remained with the club until the competition. He is now a cornerback for the University of Alabama Blazers.
Trevon, a cornerback with the Dallas Cowboys, is the youngest of the three siblings. Like Diggs, he is convinced about his football career. Diggs has been managing his family since their father’s death. In an interview with ESPN, Trevon said, “He was there for me when my father died, so he has always looked after me. I always, without fail, ask him everything. I’m questioning him at two o’clock in the morning.” Diggs believes in his brothers and, while doing so, attempts to coach them and point out their areas for growth.
Stefon Diggs and His Brother’s Relationship
The Diggs brothers have established a reputation for distinction in their respective fields. While Stefon became the first Bills wide receiver to win consecutive Pro Bowl appearances, his brother, Trevon, was invited this year. Stefon said he couldn’t stop smiling when he saw his brother’s name on the list. He said that although he was proud of Trevon and confident in his selection, witnessing it live provided him more delight than hearing his name.
Trevon returned to Alabama for his senior year in 2019, despite hurting his foot a month into his junior season. Diggs assisted him in his recovery by comforting him and encouraging him to work harder once he was well. Trevon was feeling down since he couldn’t play in the sixth game against Arkansas due to a fractured foot. Stefon said in an interview, “I’m the elder brother, but I’m also the one who will hold him responsible and tell him there’s nothing he can do right now. Right now, you must wait it out, cry it out, or do whatever you must, but when the time comes to return to rehab, you must return to it because you cannot repair it right now.”
Trevon showed significant progress after his injury and fought tirelessly to accomplish what he deserved. Diggs made certain that his brother stayed on course and that the injuries did not have an impact on his mental condition. The brothers are now all ready to participate in the Pro Bowl against one another. Trevon and Stefon exercised together but never spoke about it since they silently supported each other.
