In Evan’s case, he seems to be the only child of his parents, but we aren’t entirely sure. There hasn’t been any mention of siblings in any articles about Evan.

Evan Pryor has no relation with former Cleveland Browns player Terrelle Pryor. The former Ohio State University player, Terrelle Pryor, has two siblings- Tyrone and Tamika.

Born and raised in Jeannette, Pennsylvania, Terrelle Pryor was raised by his single mother, Thomasina. His biological father, Craig, passed away at age 44 from a neurological condition. 

His surrogate father, Teddy Sarniak, passed away in 2012, six days after Craig’s demise. Craig left him and his mother when he was six.

Terrelle Pryor Tough Childhood

In an interview, Evan said it had always been him, his two siblings, and his mother. There was a time when the family couldn’t afford to live in a house. They would hop from one hotel to another. 

Thomasina would have to pick three or four jobs to raise her three kids. Thomasina was only 16 or 17 when she had her first son, Tyrone. Two years later, Terrelle came along, and four years later, Tamika. 

There was also a time when Terrelle and his family would live in their grandmother’s house. His brother Tyrone would pick up fights regularly, leading him to be kicked out of high school.

Terrelle previously said his brother was also a talented athlete and had received an offer from Delaware State. In 2017, Terrelle said Tyrone was working in construction and was living in Pittsburgh.

In his interview, Terrelle heavily complimented his surrogate dad, Teddy Sarniak, who took him under his wing when he was in grade five. He also saved Terrelle from falling into bad habits like selling drugs, which had become a norm in Jeannette. 

In 2010, Terrelle was suspended for selling memorabilia. He said he would do it again as he needed the money for his mother and sister, who didn’t have heat in their apartment. 

Terrelle is available on Instagram and mostly shares pictures with his son, Terrelle Jr. His sister, Tamika Pryor, works as a travel agent and is available on Instagram with the username @dink1519.
