Hi,

 

The type of plugin you want is a Twitter Feed, where you have the ability to set the source Twitter account to be displayed. Unfortunately,  I don't know of any that will pull multiple feeds, or that you can readily clone these.

 

Here's one that's pretty good, but would still require customization to allow it to pull feeds from multiple people.

I think Twitter shuts down unauthorized private feeds, so unless the player has authorized the feed, then you may not be allowed to display their tweets.

 

You may wish to consult our Pros to see if one of them can come up with a custom solution.

 

That said, you should be aware that you can grab their website posts as RSS feeds, imported to your site, if that option doesn't work.  You just need a good, up to date RSS importing plugin.
