Jason Kelce admits he PUNCHED Travis in a teenage dispute over basketball before his younger brother hit him. The 36-year-old Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce tells The Daily Mail about the last time he and his younger brother, Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, got into a full-fledged fistfight.
Jason spoke on “The Big Podcast with Shaq” on Sunday when he recalled a childhood anecdote and discussed his connection with his brother, NBA champion Shaquille O’Neal.
He described an event, saying, “I was a junior in high school; Trav was a freshman.” He had recently grown taller. He was always a better athlete, but I was ahead of him. He’d recently reached puberty.
“We’re out in the backyards, and he starts just driving and doing this stupid little hook shot… and he is making it every single time, and I can’t do anything to stop it.”
“So, naturally, I resort to fouling him. “The only way I know is to stop it.”
“So he picks up the ball, throws it at me, and walks inside the house… So I go inside. I grabbed him on the shoulder and hit him.

“I don’t know how it got that heated. I punched him in the face, and every time it was in the face.”
“And every time before that, he would cry or whatever,” said Jason of young Travis’s response to getting hit.
“But this time he took the punch, scooped me off my feet, and slammed me on the kitchen floor so hard that the oven got knocked off the rack.
“We’re up in a full-on fistfight. Dad comes behind me to break it up and grabs me. Travis pushed me back on top of Dad, and the only thing that stopped the fight was my dad screaming, ‘Oh my ribs.’ So we thought that we had hurt him, so we snapped out of it.”
