Kevin Kolb married his high school sweetheart in February. Whitney is a looker, but you'd think he'd have drawn at least a little inspiration from Tom Brady's Angel-hunting pursuits this past year. In all seriousness, Kolb comes from a strong Christian upbringing, so getting hitched before entering a world of temptresses was probably the natch move for him. Whitney is a scholarship athlete herself, and she "limited out" in a half hour the first time she and Kevin fished together. Limiting out is a new verb for me, but I like it.
Bob Brookover has a nice piece on Kolb's family life in today's Inquirer, where he details Kolb's relationship with his dad and primary interests, hunting and fishing.
"I killed an 18-point [buck] about four years ago," Kolb said. "We all fish together, too. I'll fish for whatever and whenever. I'm very excited about trying some [Pennsylvania] fly-fishing. I once caught a 76-pound yellow cat[fish]. I caught a 250-pound blue marlin a couple summers ago. It probably took about 25 minutes to reel it in. Fishing is a way for me to get away from everything. It's my solitude."
When you start your career getting booed on draft day, it's good to know you have a way to find some solitude.
