The siblings are the valedictorian and salutatorian at Scott High School in Toledo, WTVG reported.

Deontae will be the valedictorian with a 4.5 grade-point average, while Deontrae will be the salutatorian with a 4.4 GPA, the television station reported.

"We both like to compete against each other," Deontrae told WTVG . "We want to score higher than each other."

The two teens traded places in their class during the school year, but in the end, Deontae came out ahead.

"It feels awesome knowing that I put in the hard work and got something out of it," Deontae told WTVG. "It feels great at the end of the day."

The brothers will continue their competition in college, as both have received full scholarships to Ohio State University, the television station reported. They will major in electrical engineering and hope to open their own firm when they graduate, WTVG reported.
