Jeremiah Holloman continues to emerge as one of Jake Fromm’s favorite targets this season. From playing on special teams to catching touchdown passes, every time the name Holloman comes up ‘he’s a hard worker’ or something similar follows.
Head coach Kirby Smart has complimented the sophomore receiver multiple times this season on his hard work. However, this time, Smart pointed out Holloman’s ability to be physical.
“He works. I’ve said it before, he works really hard. He blocks really physical. Everything is important to him, all the details,” Smart stated. He’s on the punt return unit that’s one of the better ones in the country. He takes pride in that. He’s a backup on kickoff coverage, backup on punt team. He just works.”
Then Smart complimented him and his teammates on their ability to take advantage of every opportunity that emerges in front of them.
“So the guys that work and play physical and catch the ball when they get the opportunity. He’s taken advantage of some opportunities he’s been presented, like in the Florida game,” Smart commented. “He took advantage of the opportunities he got last week. But he’s not the only one in that room. There’s a group of young men in that room that do a great job for our run game, for our special teams and then when we get an opportunity to throw it they’re able to take advantage of it.”
His fellow teammates notice that he continues to get better as well. J.R. Reed pointed out that Holloman was quick to jump on the opportunity to get better.
“I’m not surprised at all. He (Holloman) has been very good for us even in his freshman year. He is improving. He is a big body receiver,” Reed noted. “He had a few guys in front of him, but when the opportunity knocked he hit it out of the park, and he is shining right now.”
Holloman is Georgia’s third-leading receiver with 19 catches for 321 yards and four touchdowns. He has a career-long 65-yard touchdown catch. Holloman averages around 35.67 yards a game and 16.89 yard a catch.
