HOUSTON, Texas - University of Houston senior quarterback Kevin Kolb (Stephenville, Texas) has been selected as the Conference USA's Preseason Offensive Player of the Year by The Sporting News in its annual National College Football Yearbook, which goes on sale in June.

The nation's top Division I-A returning statistical leader in virtually every passing category, Kolb enters his final season with the Cougars having started 36 straight games. Kolb has thrown for 9,155 yards and accumulated 9,752 yards of total offense in his career. He was named the C-USA Third Team in 2005, when he led the Cougars to the Fort Worth Bowl.

Kolb also was selected to the preseason First-Team, and was joined on the squad by senior wide receiver Vincent Marshall and junior tackle SirVincent Rogers, as well as senior linebacker Wade Koehl.

A First-Team, All-C-USA selection as a wide receiver and a Third-Team pick as a punt returner, Marshall starts the 2006 season on a 36-game reception streak, and like Kolb, is the nation's #1 career returning leader in receptions (192) and yards (2,791). The Kolb-to-Marshall connection is the best returning passing-receiving tandem in Division I-A.

As for Rogers and Koehl, both were Third-Team, All-League picks last season.

Joining Kolb in the preseason awards is senior wide receiver Biren Ealy, who was named the Conference USA Offensive Newcomer of the Year. A transfer from the University of Arizona, Ealy is expected to provide Kolb with another offensive weapon this season.

Finally, Kolb was named by the magazine as the No. 9 quarterback in the nation, while Marshall was picked No. 19 at wide receiver.
