Judging from their first nine games, there’s a good chance that Louisiana Tech University’s softball team will be on the run aplenty in this weekend’s University of Southern Mississippi tournament.

Ruston High School will open the 2015 prep football playoffs at home while Cedar Creek School and Grambling Laboratory High School will hit the road.

But Holley defied the odds.

Holley was about to join former Tech head coach Sonny Dykes as an intern for the University of California’s strength and conditioning department before the Tiger-Cats called in late May offering him a chance to show his on-field skills on more time.
