DITR: Treyvion Holly

During the 2020 season, Treyvion Holly was one of the best players in the state and he was only a sophomore. Holly currently attends Union Parish High School in Farmerville, LA. The 2023 running back is currently listed at 5’8, 180 pounds and is able to do whatever he wants once that ball is in his hands. Whenever Holly is able to reach the second level, more likely than not he is going to score with his great speed and elusiveness in the open field. This young man had a historic season last year, but he has his eyes set on next season. After speaking with him, he made it clear that he has more to accomplish, and I am willing to bet that he will have an even greater season next year. This incredible young man also has a 3.2 GPA while playing two other sports along with football.

What is your why? A lot of coaches want to know if your heart and mind is in the right place. Why do you go so hard, why is it so important that you play at the next level?

I started liking football when I was very young, and it became much more important to me when my grandpa died. My grandpa was a big sports fan, and we would always talk about how I would go to the NFL. When he passed, I wanted to give up but something in my heart told me not to. If he was still here today, he would want me to follow my dream. And for me to able to do it will really be special because he wanted me to make it to the NFL. Playing sports is for him.

In what ways has football benefited your life?

It has benefited my life greatly. Where I am from people don’t make it far. To have young people asking questions like “How did you get this far”, it feels great because that proved that I am doing my job and my coaches are doing their job too by making me a better man.

What advice would you give a young kid trying to make it in football?

First keep God with you wherever you go. Next, I would say to keep working and make sure you are staying motivated. Don’t let anyone tell what you can and can’t do because you can do anything you put your mind to. Finally, I would say to keep your grades up.

What are your hobbies outside of football? What do you do like to do in your spare time?

I am a tri-sport athlete. I play basketball and baseball as well. I like to go fishing and hunting. I love being around my family, having fun at the bonfires, and I also like playing video games and stuff.

In what ways has basketball and baseball impacted your football ability?

Basketball has helped me stay in shape and has also helped with my footwork. The constant running up and down the court has helped with my endurance, and also has taught me to keep your feet moving. Baseball is all about hip rotation when swinging a bat and your hips are essential when playing football.

In your opinion, what do you think is the highlight of your career? And why id that moment so important to you?

State championship game. Growing up in 2013, I was at the state championship and my current team Union Parish was playing in it. After they won, I told my coach that I will be playing in this game one day. And it came true.

Who is your favorite NFL or College player? What parts of their games do you like the most?

Clyde Edwards-Helaire. I love his game. Even though he is not the tallest, his mind is strong. I know he does not care when people talk about his height, so I like him a lot.

How do you think your coaches and teammates would describe you?

Respectful, a leader, always trying to keep the going. Very humble and always being a problem solver for the team. If anyone needs help with something, I will be the first to help.

How would you describe your game?

Im a patient running back. I like to let the hole develop. 

How has corona affected the way you stay and shape and workout?

It has affected a lot. Over the summer I was supposed to go to camps and college visits. After corona, I wasn’t able to do any of that and was forced to adapt how I worked out, for example I had to ask my coach for workouts to at home and it was hard. Our workout sessions used to be every day and now it’s like the offense has certain days and the defense has certain days.

What would a college team be getting out of you? What are you looking for in a program?

I am looking for a college that will make me feel at home. I want to be comfortable in the system. What they will get out of is a person that goes 110% at all times in everything I do.

What are some goals you have for the rest of the offseason and regular season?

In my offseason, I would like to get bigger, stronger, and faster. During the season, I want to surpass 3000 yards to beat the all-time state rushing record. I know I can do this because I rushed for 2700 yards last year. I also finished with 48 touchdowns, so I want to get 50 this year. Finally, I want to get back to the state championship.
