LANGDON, N.D. — Playing in one Dakota Bowl is a dream for high school football players in North Dakota.

Going to three feels like even more of a fantasy.

Getting to do it alongside your twin brother almost seems like a one in a million chance.

For Grant and Simon Romfo, it's their reality.


The duo have been devastating for Langdon Area-Edmore-Munich in 2019, combining to score 77 touchdowns in an unbeaten campaign. They'll lead the Cardinals back into the Fargodome for the third consecutive season.

Spending all of the football season together is natural to them, given the fact they are virtually by each other's side at all times.

"You just kind of do everything together, so you're with each other all the time," Grant said. "So you just get to know him and he becomes like my best friend."

When they aren't carving up defenses, they still compete off the field. Whether it's ping-pong, a game of pool, or even a friendly round of rock-paper-scissors, the two want to win everything.

Grant is the eldest of the two and sometimes let's Simon hear about it.

"He says he's the oldest child, but really we're the same age," Simon says. "It's like, 'You're 17 minutes older.'"

The two have made history together on the field as well. They helped the Cardinals win their first football state crown a season ago.

"It was the best feeling in the world, it was just like dreams come true at one time," Simon recalled.


"We've always talked about going to the Dakota Bowl and playing in the Dakota Bowl and to do it three years in a row is just unbelievable," Grant says.

Now they're hoping to give that state title it's own twin when they battle Bishop Ryan in Friday's Class A title bout.
