Michael Oher's Little Brother To Play Hoops At Loyola

New, comments

In the movie, The Blind Side, Michael Oher was adopted by the Tuohy family, and spent a lot of time playing and training with the youngest member of the family, Sean Tuohy, Jr. Based on his true story, Oher went on to star at Ole Miss and then was the first round draft choice of the Baltimore Ravens in 2009. Now, his young friend and brother is all grown up and has just signed to play college basketball at Baltimore's Loyola University.

In a story on USA Today, which references an article in the Baltimore Sun, Tuohy acknowledged that if he wanted to go to Oher and his parents' alma mater, he would have had to make the team as a walk-on. When Loyola showed interest, the connection seemed perfect for all parties.

Oher was thrilled to hear that his younger bro would be playing close to where he played and lived and now plans to be his biggest fan in the stands, saying,

"I'm going to enjoy having him up here...I get to go to most of the home games, just to see him play."
