CHARLOTTE, NC- Monmouth University fifth-year senior quarterback Kenji Bahar (Baltimore, MD/Calvert Hall) has been named Big South Conference Preseason Offensive Player of the Year, the league announced at its annual Football Media Day on Tuesday. Bahar was one of five Hawks to be named preseason All-Big South, with senior Tymere Berry (Toms River, NJ/Toms River South), senior Matt Mosquera (Middleton, NJ/Middletown South), junior Pete Guerriero (Lyndhurst, NJ/Lyndhurst) and sophomore Juwon Farri (Germantown, MD/Northwest). Additionally, rising junior Justin Terry (Brooklyn, NY/Christ the King) was named to the Preseason All-Big South Honorable Mention team. Bahar, a fifth-year senior, has started 34 games for the Blue & White and was a Second Team All-Big South selection a season ago. Last year, Bahar set the Monmouth record for passing yards in a season while leading the Big South in passing yards, efficiency, yards per game, yards per completion and passing touchdowns. He is the first Monmouth player to earn Big South Preseason Offensive Player of the Year honors. The Baltimore native has started 26 consecutive games for the Blue & White and has appeared in 34 total contests, which is third all-time for a MU signal caller. Last season he accounted for 23 total touchdowns, including passing for 20. Bahar ranks fourth or higher in five of six career passing records at Monmouth and is just 1,855 yards away from taking the top spot from Brian Boland (2003-06).
