April 18 Fort Worth Star-Telegram:
“The fish tales and the trash talk begin in a phone call, before Kevin Kolb even launches his boat into Lake Granbury. “Y’all ready to lose?” Kit Getchell says, claiming to know where the fish are as he eggs on Kolb.
Kolb has pre-fished, so, after not getting a bite in two hours of scouting, he knows where the fish aren’t. Kolb and his partner, Jeff Gilbert, the owner of Fun-N-Sun Boat Sales, are competing in a weekly Working Man Tournament.
Kolb is at home here.
He and his wife, Whitney, still live in the modest four-bedroom house they bought in a gated community on the lake soon after the Philadelphia Eagles made Kolb a second-round pick in 2007. A year ago, they bought land on the other side of the lake to build their dream home for their growing family.
Kolb and Whitney Huddleston became high school sweethearts when Kolb’s family moved to Stephenville his freshman year. They married in 2007, two months before Kolb was drafted, and they decided to build their future in Granbury, which is 29 miles from Stephenville.
Philadelphia is their second home, but, with the Eagles committing to Michael Vick as their starting quarterback, Kolb surely will build his NFL future elsewhere. Their home, in a suburb a half hour from the Eagles‘ NovaCare Training Complex, isn’t up for sale yet, but they hope it will be soon.”
