Ticat defensive co-ordinator Corey Chamblin missed practice Wednesday — but he had a decent excuse.
Chamblin’s wife, Samantha, went into labour early Wednesday morning and gave birth to their first child, son Karter Loria Chamblin, just before 11 a.m. Weighing in at five pounds, 13 ounces, both child and mother are said to be doing fine.
Chamblin is expected to be on the sidelines for Friday’s game.
The Tiger Cats have made available their logos etc to the Massilon Tigers, a high school team in an 18000 pop town just outside Canton Ohio. When a boy is born there, a small yellow football is placed in the crib with the baby.
BTW the high school stadium seats 30,000.
Our Caretaker told me he stopped by in Massilon just after our logo switch and checked out the local reaction. Just like here, it was mixed.
Best wishes again to the happy Chambin family.
