Adrian, Andre and Anthony Woodard learned quickly that family is all you have. 

Original natives of Nashville, Tennessee, in 2009 the Woodard brothers established residency in Texas. The triplets moved after their freshman year of high school, when their father landed a job in Beaumont. The move wasn’t easy for the brothers.

“We got a chance to get closer because it was just us. All of our other family was back home in Tennessee,” said Anthony.
