Isaiah Holloway was been a key piece in Timpview's dominant defense these past few years. Holloway has been referred to as a "lock down cornerback" by his coach, Cary Whittingham, and the game tape supports that. When Holloway is on the field, not too many quarterbacks even look to his side of the field. A few injuries have held Holloway back, but he is 100% healthy going into his senior year and hopes to draw some attention his way.
"I am planning to have a big senior year," Holloway stated. "I want to win football games and another state championship, but this is also my last chance to get recruited. I know I need to have a big year. I've done well the past few years, but I haven't always been healthy. I am feeling great now and should hopefully turn some heads."
As a sophomore, Holloway was one of the top cornerbacks in Utah. He recorded 50 tackles and had 4 interceptions on defense. His tape from 2012 is very impressive. A handful of colleges began tracking the Timpview defensive back and have told him they are watching him this fall.
"I've heard from a few of the local schools," Holloway claimed. "Weber State and Southern Utah are recruiting me the hardest in-state. I have also heard from Stanford and Wisconsin. I am open to playing anywhere. I've always kind of liked the idea of playing college ball down in Texas or the south, but I also really like the Pac-12. It doesn't matter to me, I just want to play football in college."
If Holloway can stay healthy and play like he did two years ago, he will help Timpview win football games and see his recruiting pick up this fall. He looked impressive against Westlake in a scrimmage last week, and has a chance to be one of the best defensive backs in Utah. He has the ability to play cornerback or safety at the next level.
