Wiki

Kevin Benjamin Kolb (pronounced /ˈkɒb/; born August 24, 1984) is an American football quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals of the National Football League (NFL). He was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles in the second round of the 2007 NFL Draft. He played college football at Houston.

Kolb attended Stephenville High School in Stephenville, Texas, where he was a three-year starter at quarterback. He moved on to the University of Houston where he earned Conference USA Offensive Most Valuable Player of the Year honors in 2006. Kolb started for two games in place of the injured Donovan McNabb during the 2009 NFL season for the Eagles, and earned NFC Player of the Week honors following his week 3 performance against the Kansas City Chiefs. Following McNabb's trade to the Washington Redskins in April 2010, Kolb became the starting quarterback for the Eagles. However, after suffering a concussion in week 1 against the Green Bay Packers, Kolb was replaced at quarterback by Michael Vick. Vick suffered a rib cartilage injury in week four and Kolb was named the starter. When Vick returned after week eight, Kolb was relegated to a backup role. Kolb was traded to the Cardinals prior to the start of the 2011 season.

While attending Stephenville High School in Stephenville, Texas, Kolb became the starting quarterback for the Yellow Jackets during his sophomore year. He was a two-time UIL District 8-4A offensive MVP. His most outstanding year was his senior year, 2002, in which he completed 206 of 321 passing attempts for 3,357 yards and 29 touchdowns, as well as rushing for 197 yards. At the end of the 2002 season, he earned honorable mention All-State and second-team Academic All-State honors.
