GREENFIELD — Watching them interact, you might mistake Mitch Gibson and Nick Gill for brothers.
The teenagers both have dark hair and wear glasses. They talk loudly, laugh even more loudly and bicker like nobody’s business.
And if Nick doesn’t like something Mitch has to say, a slug in the arm is almost a guarantee.
It’s the sort of playful relationship you might expect of two boys who have known each other since grade school – not ones who have just gotten to know one another.
Mitch, 17, and Nick, 18, became fast friends last year during a program aimed at building friendships between students with and without disabilities.
