Kevin grew up in Fordyce, Arkansas, and then attended Oklahoma State University where he earned his General Studies degree. He helped the Cowboys improve from 3-8 to 8-5 by his senior season in 2002. After an outstanding performance during the Senior Bowl, Kevin went from a marginal first round choice to being selected by the Minnesota Vikings as the 9th overall pick for the 2003 NFL Draft. Kevin had an amazing 13 year NFL career (11 with the Vikings), recording 525 tackles and 63 sacks, reaching the Pro Bowl 6 times, making the NFL 2000’s alldecade team, and being recognized as one of the 50 greatest Vikings in 2010. Kevin reached the SuperBowl with the Seahawks in 2015 where they lost to the Patriots 28-24. He married his wife Tasha in 2005 who ended her collegiate basketball career in 2006 as a senior at Louisiana Tech and helped the Lady Techsters to the NCAA Tournament, earning all-conference honors. Kevin retired from the NFL in 2016 and enjoys spending time with his kids while Tasha coaches basketball.
