Both Buckley brothers owe thanks to their father, though, who passed the sport onto them.
"He was a track athlete, shot and disc in high school and college and then went on to coach," Quentin said. "He coaches the middle school right now. He started us out real early, kind of as a safer alternative to football or one of the other more contact sports, but with this sport you control your own destiny.
"It's something we've always had that's been a real bond. We've enjoyed it ever since he got us hooked on it."
For Christian, the technique, like his passion, has been in place for a while, but as he continues to get older, his increasing strength has lifted his ability to new levels, Bonecutter said.
"Last year, he was a skinny little freshman that had a lot of technique, a lot of skill, but he's put on some muscle, put on some weight, and he's really started to take off with his throws now," he said.
As a freshman, Christian placed third at the state meet in discus and fourth in shot. Quentin took fifth in discus and 14th in shot.
Christian's newfound strength has allowed him to throw with greater ease where other competitors struggle.
"I always joke and tell people watching him throw a 12-pound shot put, most people are screaming and grunting and he throws like he's made of rubber," Quentin said. "He's so relaxed and quick on his feet. He just has that little combination of all he needs. He's just strong enough, just fast enough and nothing overbears it."
The future's bright for Christian, who will continue to carry the torch in the Buckley family tradition. Before Quentin caps his career, though, the Buckley brothers hope to finish together in a blaze of glory, one-two at this year's state meet.
"We would love that," Quentin said. "We've always been the Buckley brothers. I was never Quentin. He was never Christian. It was always the two of us going through. It didn't matter which one of us won a meet as long as we both did our best and often we're getting one and two and now Poca's getting one, two and three at a whole lot of meets, so we couldn't be happier."
