The family feel extends to the players too, and they were happy to share it with their most recent visitor.
Holiday says the favorite aspect of his visit was simply seeing how well the players got along and worked hard during the off-season.
“The players there are very disciplined and treated each other like family,” Holiday said. “Even the freshman that just got there.”
Holiday was hosted on his visit by senior receiver Dylan Thomas. If there is a player that can understand Holiday’s ability, it’s Thomas. Thomas was once a quarterback in high school that has made the transition to receiver. Holiday says he enjoyed having Thomas as a host.
