Vikings linebacker Eric Kendricks recorded seven tackles in a strong effort against the Saints in the divisional round. He and his Vikings now just need a win over a team quarterbacked by Nick Foles to get into the Super Bowl. We guess it’s also worth mentioning there’s a “Brother v. Brother” element here with Mychal Kendricks on the Eagles — Joe Buck, Troy Aikman, and Erin Andrews will likely beat that narrative to death.
So Eric isn’t on speaking terms with his big bro for the foreseeable future. No worries, he’ll have his model girlfriend, Ally Courtnall, in Philly to celebrate or mourn postgame. Like Eric, she attended UCLA and was a two-sport athlete participating in soccer and track and field.
In an interview with SportingChic, she says she lives in Minny during football season and that Sundays are dedicated to the Vikings:
Sunday’s are always reserved for Vikings Football! Whether it’s going to the brand new US Bank Stadium to cheer on my boyfriend Eric, or going to a friends house with some of the other WAGS to watch the game, I am always cheering for him wherever I am.
Fun fact: Her dad is former NHLer Russ Courtnall.
