Holle Coming Up Big For Kamiakin Braves

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- When the Kamiakin Braves take on Capital in the 3A State Semis on Saturday, they will do it with a number of weapons. One of them just happens to be star on the basketball court and on the football field.

Great players shine under the brightest of lights. Kamiakin Braves receiver Tyler Holle has done just that in the state playoffs. Holle had 4 touchdown catches in the regular season.

In two state playoff games, he's had just that, 4 TD grabs.

"A big part of it is that we have a lot of receivers that are dangerous," said Holle. "Tim White's been double teamed quite a bit. So that's left me one on one and I've been able to capitalize on it."

Sure, playing alongside talent helps but maybe his playoff experience on the hardwood plays a factor. Last year's Braves basketball team made it all the way to regionals, providing Holle his 1st playoff test.

"There was a lot at stake so that experience, I think, definitely helps us," said Holle. "We've been there before. We've played in front of those big crowds."

"What we preach here at Kamiakin is to play multiple sports, because a lot of kids will say I want to take the winter off and get ready for football," said Kamiakin Head Coach Scott Biglin. "But, you can't replicate competition by just being in the weight room. It's a bonus for us because they're used to the atmosphere. They're used to having everything on the line."

You're remembered for how you perform in critical moments and in playoff games. If Holle's postseason showing this fall is any indication, Braves fans will have the highest of praises for the senior.
