Biography

FINS FACT
All football fans have a Super Bowl memory, however not many have one like Kendall’s parents, Calvin and Ardee. During the first quarter of Super Bowl XX in 1986, Ardee, who was expecting her third child, called Calvin, who was attending a Super Bowl party that he helped organize for his fellow police officers to let him know that she was in labor and his third child was on the way. Thinking that Ardee was playing a joke on him, Calvin returned home to find Ardee in labor. The couple headed to the hospital and a few hours later an 8-pound, 3-ounce Kendall Arkel Langford was born.
