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.
