Evans has her own round about connection to Capitol Broadcasting.  Her father, Johnny Evans, calls “color” for the Wolfpack football radio network; Wolfpack Sports Marketing is a division of CBC.  The elder Evans is a former standout quarterback for N.C. State and has been calling exciting games this season as his son, Daniel, has stepped into the first-string QB position during this season.  Katherine & Daniel are two in a set of quadruplets.
