Jeremiah Holloman: "I've Grown In Practice"

Jeremiah Holloman didn’t see the field a lot during his freshman campaign. A once highly touted recruit, it took work and dedication to earn playing time. Now he gets playing time and already made one touchdown this season. All that progress, he states that as growth in practice. 
“I’ve grown in practice. Coming in I wasn’t big at practicing all the time in high intensity. It was new to me. So being here and getting after it, I’m buying into it,” Holloman said. “I’m buying into special teams and learning day-in and day-out on how to be a better student of the game. It took halfway through my freshman year to realize that the guys that really bought in during practice, it was paying off for them.” 
The hard work paid off during the Middle Tennessee State game. Holloman caught an 11-yard touchdown pass from Jake Fromm giving the Bulldogs a 14-0 lead. Throughout the game, he made three catches for 90 yards and the one score.
“I was really just happy to be able to be here and show what I’m capable of doing. It’s all about going back to the basics and doing everything right,” Holloman comments. “I’ve been feeling confident in practice by doing things over and over again, so the game didn’t really make or break me. It might of validated it for people outside of the program, but it’s just something I’ve been repeatedly doing in practice.”
Holloman is the second leading receiver behind Mecole Hardman with five catches for 112 yards. After this break out performance, he could explode onto the scene and make a name for himself.
