TOWN OF UNION (WBNG BINGHAMTON) Adam Gallagher says his family "talks about it all the time."

"Everything's football in our house," he says.

How could it not be, when a father coaches all 3 of his sons at once?

"Everything isn't roses all the time, but it's great to be able to have them," says Maine-Endwell head football coach Matt Gallagher.

Gallagher's sons Kyle, Adam and Drew have played together all season, -- Kyle the quarterback, Adam a running back and Drew a sophomore defender.

"I'm definitely going to miss that probably more than anything...playing with my brothers and my dad as coach," says Kyle.

He'll miss "it" because, as a senior, Maine-Endwell's Class B championship game Sunday is the last time Kyle will share a football field with his family.

Kyle has led the Spartans to consecutive state titles. A chance for a third looms Sunday at the Carrier Dome, where Maine-Endwell faces Schalmont in the Class B championship game.

"I've enjoyed every second of it," says Adam.

"It's one of those bittersweet things...but there's going to be some great memories," says Dad.

Kyle's passes often find Adam -- Adam has 8 touchdown catches in the 2013 season.

"It's great having him throw the ball to me," Adam says.

That Gallager family bond extends to the rest of the team.

"I've made them a part of my family. Basketball, football...I've been around them all the time," says senior wide receiver Alex Wisniewski. "I couldn't ask for more. Coach Gallagher's given me every opportunity in the world to succeed, and I'd like to thank him. I'd like to thank all of them."

Coach would like to thank his sons, and all of his players, with a state title.

"If we finish it off with a win, it will be pretty special," the eldest Gallagher says.

"We're just going to enjoy this one and have fun with it," Kyle says.

Says Adam: "Hopefully we can go out there and get it done on Sunday. We'll see what happens."
