Everyone likes a great sports story, especially those involving families.

Maybe it is something in the DNA; maybe it is the father passing on exceptional skills to the son. Whatever the reason, there are some incredible stories of families earning fame in sports right down the bloodline.

10. Calvin and Grant Hill

While most father-son duos played the same sport, Calvin and Grant Hill chose completely different paths to stardom. Calvin made his name on the NFL gridiron, where he enjoyed a 12-year career from 1969-81. His son did well to follow in father's footsteps, even if he did it while wearing basketball shoes.

9. Felipe and Moises Alou

Both the elder and younger Alou have been prolific players in Major league Baseball spanning a period of over 60 years.

8. Gordie and Mark Howe

Some still consider "Mr. Hockey" Gordie Howe to be the greatest player that ever laced up a pair of skates. It would be easy to be overlooked as Gordie Howe's son, but Mark was a very, very good defencemen during his NHL career.
