An athletic bloodline is flowing through the veins and family tree roots of Tamika Nurse.

Her dad, Richard, played professional football for the C.F.L’s Hamilton Tigercats.

Her aunt, dad’s sister Raquel, was a Division I basketball player on scholarship.

A warm smile fills Tamika’s face when speaking of family.

Her parents aside, she claims her relationship
is closest with Aunt Raquel and her Uncle Don.

“They are like my favorite people ever,? Tamika said.

Uncle Don knows a thing or two about being an athlete.

He’s been a quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles
since he graduated from Syracuse University in 1999.

In Tamika’s world, Donovan McNabb is family.

“He’s always just been my goofy uncle,? Nurse said.
