Diamond Bar’s double trouble: The Peterson Twins

One can’t blame identical twin brothers Tyler and Kyle Peterson of Diamond Bar for wanting to have a lot of fun at others’ expense.
So a couple of years ago Kyle took a seat in his brother’s history class. After 10 minutes or so Tyler snuck into the room, asking the teacher to remove the “imposter.”
Teacher George Harderson was not amused.
“I don’t care who stays, but one of you has to go,” he barked.
Previous coach Ryan Maine, now an assistant at Corona Santiago, said he often mixed the two up.
First-year coach Marcus Hughes has also had trouble figuring out who is who, although the problem was remedied recently when Tyler got his hair cut.
“When I first got here I mixed them up all the time,” Hughes said. “They even have the same mannerisms. There was no easy way to tell them apart.”
The 17-year old twins are rarely apart. They have the same circle of friends, although Tyler also has a girlfriend. When they do argue it is usually over something trivial – what movie to watch, where to stop and eat on the way home from practice.
