Weaving his way in and out of the defense, and onto the Recruit Georgia top plays is Villa Rica senior Du’Shaunte Holloway. The 5’11”, and 190 lbs. athlete has really turned it on this year, but no doubt his Week 9 run was one of the nicest of his high school career.
Holloway took the hand-off to the right, and made multiple downhill cuts that grouped the defenders together, which in-turn created a seam for Holloway to explode through and down the right sideline for a touchdown. Holloway ended up with 10% of the top play vote, which drops him at the #4 spot on our top plays for Week 9.
We are over three-quarters of the way done with the 2018 season, so how would the senior describe his body of work thus far?
“My senior year has been great so far. We’ve made a complete turn around from last year and have gone undefeated at home and recruiting has been going well,” the Villa Rica senior said.
Holloway has a wide selections of offers with schools like: Kennesaw State, Penn, Eastern Kentucky, Illinois State, The Citadel, Western Kentucky, Yale, Harvard, Princeton, Wofford, FIU, Furman, Georgia Southern, Dartmouth, Cornell, Columbia, Mercer, Brown, Northern Arizona and San Diego State all offering over the last year.
Goals heading into the final stretch of the year for Holloway are simple. “This season my main goal is to make it to playoffs and make my community happy.”
Hiram is coming off of back-to-back wins after beating rival Hiram (32-21) back on Week 9 and Woodland-Carterville last weekend (36-8). Holloway teams up with a talented backfield with juniors Mecose Todd and Rico Zachary Jr. both splitting carries. The trio make for one of the more talented units in the state of Georgia at the running back position. The Wildcats have a 6-3 record on the year and are 5-2 in region play.
Recruiting is still going strong for Holloway, and he has several visits lined up. “I plan to visit Princeton and Yale and FIU and maybe a couple others.”
Since we have scouted Holloway, he’s always been one of the best two-way players in the state of Georgia – his versatility is a big reason why he made our top 300 back last summer. At the next level, he shows a lot of ability on both sides of the football, but with his extreme physicality, he does seem to be a better fit on the defensive side of the ball.
To solidify that point, when asked about where he can improve, Holloway honed on his defensive skills, “I want to get stronger and improve on taking on blocks and getting off of them.”
The Villa Rica senior has a +4.0 GPA and 1300 on the SAT is one of the highest among FBS caliber recruits in our database. Interested in recruiting Holloway? Click HERE to visit his Recruit Georgia profile.
