DANIEL'S UNCLE Jeff Hostetler, a 13-year NFL vet, says
that when he was growing up, he and his three brothers and three sisters (he's
the fifth) went at each other a bit too hard. "We couldn't even play
badminton," says Jeff (right). "It got too intense." He feels a
familiar vibe when the next generation starts roughhousing at the family's
twice-yearly reunions. "We have to keep our eyes on them," he says.
Jeff's son, Justin, the middle of three, is a defensive back at West Virginia
and one of the family's four current or incoming Division I football players;
among the cousins are also college All-Americas in lacrosse and field hockey.
Hostetler, 46, lives in Morgantown, W.Va., where he runs a construction company
and coaches QBs at University High. He says the kids are hard on him, too,
especially when his NFL videos come out. "Not a lot of patting on the
back," he says. "They get on you about everything."
