Esks receiver Shamawd Chambers posts video tribute to slain brother

Edmonton Eskimos receiver Shamawd Chambers has posted a touching video tribute to his brother on the 10-year anniversary of his death.

Jonathan Chambers was kidnapped and murdered on March 7, 2007 north of Toronto in what a judge would describe as a “”drug deal gone bad.” Lenworth Spence was convicted of first degree murder in the slaying in 2011.

In the video, Chambers recounts his life over the last ten years, including his career at Wilfird Laurier, his selection by the Edmonton Eskimos in the 2012 CFL Draft and his Grey Cup win two seasons ago. Chambers spent last season with the Saskatchewan Roughriders before re-signing in Edmonton in February.

The piece was produced by videographer Alex Anthony, who has worked extensively with the Toronto Argonauts (this piece on Pinball Clemons was particularly good.) Chambers is from Toronto and lives there in the off-season.
