But his dad, Richard Nurse, was a wide receiver with my beloved Hamilton Tiger Cats, so he has pro athlete blood lines.

There will be several familiar hockey surnames like Subban, Domi and Cassels playing in the world under-17 challenge in Windsor, Ont. next week. Another player with a sporting connection of a different kind will be Team Ontario defenceman Darnell Nurse of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.

His father Richard was a receiver with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the family's impressive athletic bloodlines don't stop there. His mother Cathy played basketball at McMaster University. His 23-year-old sister Tamika played basketball at Bowling Green and Oregon. His younger sister Kia, 15, is a star at St. Thomas More Secondary in Hamilton, and led the Ontario under-15 squad to a national title last summer.

Also, Nurse's uncle just happens to be Donovan McNabb. Richard's sister met the NFL quarterback when the two attended Syracuse University.

"They all have been a big influence in my life," Darnell said.
