Versatile Colony football standout Bahari Holloway has signed with Delaware State.
He also had offers from Youngstown State and University of San Diego and made trips to all three.
“From the first minute I got there is felt like a family atmosphere,” he said. “It’s a full ride so that’s a good thing. It just felt like the best situation for me.”
Holloway, a 6-foot-3, 210-pounder, did a little bit of everything for the Titans but will be playing safety in college. That suits him just fine. He grew up playing quarterback but moved to safety as a sophomore and adapted well.
“At safety you’re kind of the quarterback of the defense and you’re the last line of defense so I like that,” he said.
Holloway played for Colony as a freshman but transferred to Roosevelt his sophomore year with some family issues factoring in. He came back to Colony as a junior but never played because of paperwork and CIF clearance that was necessary.
He thinks not playing as a junior hurt but is happy with the opportunity he has now. He plans to major in photo journalism of possibly graphic design.
