Sallie Rose Hollis 2017.jpg

While enrolled in a college creative writing class, I penned a short fictional piece about a little boy who, in the vernacular, worshipped his father.
This boy wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps, and literally tried to do that in his parents’ country garden.

On first review, at least to the inhabitants of Tech Nation, it was yet another bio line in the programs and media guides of an HC with a famous father.

Holtz followed Jack Bicknell, Jr., Derek Dooley and Sonny Dykes with the well-known pedigree distinction.
