60 seconds with KEITH ELLISON

Your younger brother, Kevin, is a star safety at the University of Southern California. You get a chance to see him play a lot?

Not as much as I'd like to, but I've seen some of his games. His team has struggled a little, but he's playing well.

Kevin is a 6-foot-1, 225-pound safety and you're a 6-foot, 228-pound linebacker. Go figure.

Yeah, it's kind of crazy. Kevin's a big boy but he carries it well. Who knows? Maybe he'll make the switch to linebacker in the pros like I did.

Speaking of the pros, are you looking forward to Kevin joining you in the NFL next year or in 2009?

I am. It's kind of strange when people start saying my younger brother could be a high draft pick. But I hope it happens because he deserves it.

You guys followed in the footsteps of your older brother, Chris. Tell us about him?

Chris played defensive back at Brigham Young in the late 1990s. He kind of showed us the way by setting a good example.

Who is the best athlete in the family?

I think if you asked any of us you would get three different answers. But since you asked me, I'll say I'm the best.-- Allen Wilson
