As the season came to an end for the 9-2 Tiffin Dragons football team, it still wasn't over for the All-American wide receiver standout Charles Holland. He has been selected to compete in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, which only 112 participates are selected to play. Holland has a long receipt of stats and rewards during his years at Tiffin University. The 6-foot-3, 200 pound wideout came out of West High school in Columbus Ohio. Holland reeled in 267 career catches, the most in school history.
He finishes with 3,603 career receiving yards and 40 touchdowns, second in school history. He was GLIAC first team All-Conference multiple times. He will be known as one of the best players in school history. In a recent interview, Holland shares his overall experience as a Tiffin Dragon. He says, “My four years here have been nothing but a growing experience. I'm the type of guy that needed, not so much the small school setting, but a family setting to help me prepare and help me grow in areas that I might not have even seen in myself and that's the one thing Tiffin did. It kept me humble, kept me working and grinding."
The NFLPA collegiate bowl is the postseason senior all-star game for any draft-eligible college football players. The game will take place on Saturday, January 19 at 2 p.m. PST/5 p.m. EST in Pasadena, California at the Rose Bowl stadium. This is a highly televised game where the athletes will lay it all on the line for their final college game to show their skill set and see where they stack up against the top seniors from all divisions. Holland is a well-rounded athlete who will rely on his quick speed off the line and his ability to make tough catches on any play. There have only been a few Dragons who have gone on to play in the NFL and Holland could very well be THE next.
