Cason – his middle name had yet to be determined as of Friday evening – was expected to go home over the weekend. Pastner has a stepson Ethan (22) and three daughters, Payten (11), Kamryn (9) and Harper (6).
“Boy or girl, you’re just happy when everybody’s healthy,” Pastner said.
Cason’s arrival was timely. The Yellow Jackets open the season against Miami (Ohio) on Tuesday evening at McCamish Pavilion. While at the hospital, though, Pastner said he managed to sneak in a few recruiting calls.
“I’m just there for support,” Pastner said. “There’s a lot of time to make some calls, try to perform my job duties.”
