Overview: A versatile weapon who lines up at running back but, Holliday possesses big play ability as a return man and has proven to be a capable receiver out of the backfield; he has also lined up as a slot wide out. His patience as a runner allows him to wait for his holes to develop, as he uses his burst and acceleration to explode past defenders. Began his career at UNLV before transferring to Santa Monica (JUCO), where they won a championship. He accounted for 1,154 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns over the past two seasons at La Verne, averaging 5.2 yards per carry, while adding 322 kick return yards (20.1 average) as a senior.
