GOLD AND BLACK ILLUSTRATED VOLUME 28, ISSUE 1 11 The Brohms are The 'First Family' Of Louisville BY STACY CLARDIE Paul Sadler Born and raised in Louisville, Oscar Brohm's sons — Brian, Jeff and Greg (left to right) — each stood out on the sports scene in the city. Now, they're on Purdue's staff and will open the season against their alma mater. T hey'd look up in the stands and, naturally, see a bunch of family members. Father Oscar, mom Donna, sister Kim, brother Brian clad in blood red. Grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins, too. But then they'd notice a neighbor, smiling widely after a big play. They'd notice a grocery store clerk from down the street, a waiter from their favorite restaurant, a fellow church pa- rishioner. Seemingly, the whole football stadium, as it were — re- ally, it was a rundown baseball stadium in the 1980s but still home for a revitalized Louisville football program with Jeff Brohm leading the show at quarterback and older brother Greg flashing talent at wide receiver — was full of more than fans.
