Hometown Heroes: The Onyejose brothers

This week’s Cardi’s Furniture & Mattresses Hometown Sports Heroes are Chukwudi and Chukwuma Onyejose.

The senior Hendricken brothers have combined for 19 goals and 8 assists, helping the Hawks to a 6-1-1 start and the top spot in Division I.

The love of soccer was handed down to the boys from their father Joseph, who played the sport at its highest level in his native Nigeria before coming to the U.S. at age 20.

The pair hope to play together at the next level and have attracted attention from a host of Division I programs around New England.
