Newest Colquitt Arrives; Check Out This Name

From the Truman Sports Complex

For Dustin Colquitt waiting for another child to be born is a little bit like standing behind the blockers and waiting for a punt. Calm, but excited; anticipating, but experienced.

Dustin’s wife Christia had already given birth to four children. No. 5 was due this past Sunday. But by Wednesday afternoon the newest Colquitt had not made an appearance and the Chiefs punter was just a little bit nervous because he had a plane to catch on Saturday for a Sunday night’s game against the Broncos in Denver.

On Thursday Christia went into labor and by Thursday night, baby No. 5 was born. It was a boy.

His name?

Cannon Colquitt

Is that a great name or what for the grandson of an NFL punter, the son of an NFL punter and the nephew of an NFL punter!

“It’s a great name,” Chiefs kicker Ryan Succop said on Friday. “With the lineage that kid has with grandfather, father, uncle . . . the best thing is that it works for a punter, a kicker or even a quarterback.”

Cannon joins Brinkley (6), Colston (4), Hartley (2) and Kinsler (1).
