Although they rarely get to see their uncle's team in person (they saw a game in Pittsburgh last season), Jake said the family watches the games on television via the NFL Ticket.
He said that his uncle may have influenced him a bit to play football when he was younger, but he added, "I really liked it and my family is pretty much a football family."
Jake added, "When I was little, I didn't really have much of a team. I rooted for the team that was doing good. Then I just started rooting for (the Titans) because of my uncle, and my family, and it was my permanent team to root for."
Note: The Rohms are not the only area athletes with close ties to the NFL.
In next week's column, I will feature another area high school player with a famous football uncle. Stay tuned.
