GREENWICH, Conn. Former Brunswick School football star Kevin Decker, who now plays at the University of New Hampshire, has been named the Colonial Athletic Association Football Offensive Player of the Year in voting conducted among the 11 league head coaches. Decker becomes the fourth student-athlete in the school's history to earn this distinction.
Decker, a resident of Armonk, N.Y., leads the league in total offense/game (317.2 yards/fifth in Football Championship Subdivision), passing yards/game (279.3/10th), pass efficiency (154.3/sixth), points responsible for/game (17.09/fifth) and touchdown passes (20).

As just the fourth quarterback in school history to eclipse 3,000 passing yards in a season, Decker's 3,072 passing yards rank fifth in New Hampshire single-season history, and he is within 246 passing yards of the No. 2 spot. His 3,951 career passing yards place him 10th all-time at UNH.
