recruit Evans focuses on ailing mom

Lions won't be applying the brakes to it.

Married to Canadian Olympic 400 metre runner Jenna Martin Evans a candidate for the 2018 Winter Games bobsleigh team theirs is no ordinary relationship.

A 29 year old Californian of Samoan extraction, DeQuin is training in preparation for his first season with the Leos, who signed the former Montreal Alouettes defensive end to a two year contract duringCFL free agency this month.

His wife, the former Jenna Martin, competed for Canada in the 2012 Summer Olympics van cleef and arpels replica clover bracelet before ditching her track shoes last year to take up bobsleigh. When two time Olympic gold medallist Kallie Humphries wants to recruit you as her brakeman, you listen.

"After I retired from track, I jumped right on it," Martin Evans explained Wednesday. "Kallie has contacted me over the last four years to give it a try and see where it leads. I got here (Calgary) a month ago. I knew I would regret it, if I didn't come out. She knows how to van cleef sweet alhambra bracelet knock off win."

Relocating to Calgary to train at Canada Olympic Park her husband played with the Stampeders for two seasons (2014 15) hasn only shortened the couple's long distance relationship, but also turned back the clock to their undergraduate days at the University of Kentucky, where the athletes from Nova Scotia and Southern California met while representing the Wildcats in football and track.

"The athletic world, even at a major university, is a small one," Jenna says. "DeQuin has been stalking me for a while (laughs). Our relationship has been long distance more than anything. Three years ago, this summer, I finally gave in (marriage). I'm here to support him any way I can. It's just amazing how he can put the weight of the world on his shoulders and be OK. I admire the way he's stepping up and leading his family."

While signing with the Lions is foremost a football decision, Evans insists, being closer to his wife and his mother, Samoan born Penina Maefau, are important benefits of the move to the West Coast. His mom, 48, lives in Tacoma, Wash., and is battling stomach cancer after previous rounds of radiation and chemotherapy to beat back breast cancer.

DeQuin spends much of his off season these days in Tacoma, attending to her needs, between training sessions and brief side trips to Calgary to be with his wife.

"My mom was always there for me, growing up, and I want to be there for her now," he explains. "My wife is very understanding of the situation. It's a blessing to wake up every day and be able to just make coffee for her. My mom struggled to raise four kids in a tough neighbourhood. She's a soldier. with a state sanctioned, high school sports program and the focus of the 2006 movie, Gridiron Gang, starring Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson.

It helped to turn his life around. Harbor Junior College and later was recruited by Kentucky, along with childhood friend Chris Matthews, the 2012 CFL rookie of the year with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and a Super Bowl champion with the Seattle Seahawks.

Undrafted in 2011, Evans caught on with the Cincinnati Bengals for three seasons before coming to Calgary in 2014.

Playing behind John Bowman and Gabriel Knapton last year with the Als, he appeared in just five games. His signing with the Lions who lost sack leader Alex Bazzie to the Indianapolis Colts in free agency might be just the career break he needs.

"In Montreal, he's got to compete against John Bowman," says Lions head coach and general managerWally Buono. "In Calgary, he's got to compete against Charleston Hughes. No matter how good you are, sometimes you're not going to get your chance. We like him. And he's excited about coming. It gives us an experienced veteran who can start for us."

With his ailing mom three hours' drive south, and his wife a short hop flight away in Calgary, Evans sees Vancouver ideally situated at the nexus of his personal and professional life.

"Playing for one of the greatest coaches, if not the greatest in CFL history, is hands down a blessing," he says. "As far as leadership, I'm here to help bring the young rooks along. What else do I bring? I can definitely get to the quarterback and make it hell for offensive linemen, complete hell. epaper, Digital Access, Subscriber Rewards), please input your Print Newspaper subscription alhambra van cleef bracelet replica phone number and postal code.
