The Texas football program has seen a few pairs of brothers on and off the field (see Colt and Case McCoy, Jordan and Jaxon Shipley, and Sam and Emmanuel Acho for starters). The team’s latest pair of siblings to wear burnt orange and white, Armanti and D’Onta Foreman, made their team spirit official by getting matching tattoos last week.
The sophomore twins from Texas City showed off their new ink on Twitter. An image of Armanti embracing his brother D’Onta in full Texas Longhorns game gear serves as the matching centerpiece on their backs, but each brother has a unique addition.
Wide receiver Armanti went with the duo’s last name in large lettering across the upper back. He also included the photo that inspired the tattoos in his tweet.

Running back D’Onta has the words “My Brother’s Keeper” in script writing surrounding the photo.

The tattoos prompted a response from former Longhorn Emmanuel Acho, who mentioned his brother Sam in his tweet and threw in a friendly jab, writing “You thinking what I’m thinking @TheSamAcho… Yup, matching notebook spirals!! #AcademicAllAmericans well, one of us”. Sam replied “Haha I’m all about it!!”

Here’s another look at D’Onta’s ink a few days later with the swelling subsided.

If there was any doubt the twins would continue playing at Texas, getting large back tattoos in Longhorns attire should prove the Foreman brothers aren’t going anywhere and love playing together.
