Personal[edit]

Holland was born with a defect in his right leg which he had corrected in seventh grade. They had to break his leg and fuse his growth plates together on both legs which stunted his growth which made it so he could not grow anymore.[3] Holland was presented with the key to his hometown, Jefferson, Texas by Mayor Bob Avery on 6/24/08 for his generous contributions over the years to the community, including his support of the Marion County Youth Football league.
