The Importance of Family

The Toronto Argonauts locker room is one big family. Coach Marc Trestman regularly stresses the importance of loving and respecting each other and how that can be the difference between winning and losing a game.

We see players regularly at practice and on the field but the unsung heroes in the mix are their support teams. The parents, siblings, wives, girlfriends, and kids behind the scenes making long-distance, crazy travel schedules and long days of practice work, to support their favourite man’s dream of playing football. 

It’s a crazy life and family really is everything so in honour of Family Day, we introduce you to a few key members of the team who aren’t on the official roster.

Marcus Ball – Daughter Marley Ball 

Chris Van Zeyl – Wife Kimberly

Declan Cross – Father Paul

Jamal Campbell – Mother Christine

Matt Black – Brother Eric 

Marc Trestman – Daugther Chloe 

James Wilder Jr. – Daughter Nala
