JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Jeffery Holland has overcome some major adversity in his life, but he hasn’t let these roadblocks stop him from achieving his dream to play college football.
The Trinity Christian Academy linebacker signed a letter of intent to play at Auburn University on Wednesday. It was a happy day for his family which has ties to the Tigers, but it was also bittersweet because his mother wasn’t physically present to take part in the celebration.
