Kenzie was on the radar to play for Team Canada but chose University where is is going after a Medical degree.
Derek's two twin boys, Brady and Adam, played their last game with COMBA College Prep last season. They are currently in Missouri playing for D1 Mineral Area College on full scholarships. Brady is a pitcher/3rd base and Adam is a pitcher/catcher.
