Thursday, August 16, 2012 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in Sports

John Laub was bred into the game of football. At the ripe age of six, Laub was out competing on the gridiron. He had the raw talent from a young age and that was due in large part to the legacy before him.

Laub's father, John, played football at the University of Delaware, and his grandfather, Doug, played at the University of Penn. He even has a second cousin known for his success in the game, former pro Matt Millen.

"It's a game I just grew up to love," said Laub. "It wasn't forced onto me, but when I picked it up, I just wanted to keep playing."
