Holiday wants to keep learning

Freshman Devin Holiday has started the season off strong. Read on to see what he wants to get better at, what he thinks of the Pac-12 opener, and more.

Freshman corner Devin Holiday is continuing to see his playing time increase and much of that has to do with the amount he is learning.

"This season is going good," Holiday said. "It is fun and I am enjoying it. I am getting better each week, learning new coverages and things we want to do, new tendencies, and what we are going to do against Washington."

Arizona has a bye week and Holiday believes that he will now have a better opportunity to reflect on the early part of the season.

"It is still early in the year and gives me a little time to look back on the three games I have played in so far and learn from my mistakes," he said. "It also helps us and gives us time to get ready for Washington. It is a real time for learning for me."

Holiday is working to learn as much as possible in order to rely more on his instincts instead of thinking too much once he hits the field.

"I want to work on more technique things and when I play, my coverage and what other players have, so I am not thinking as much and I can just go and play instead of thinking," Holiday said. "I am trying to learn as much as I can so I can just go out and play."

Washington recruited Holiday for a period of time, but the corner says that fact will not be in the back of his mind when he goes to Seattle.

"They did for a little bit, but I don't really think about it too much," Holiday said. "I play every team like I have a grudge against them. I am excited for Pac-12 play. I am going to go out there and play like I have been playing and get better every week."

With Pac-12 play starting, it would be understandable if there was a different approach among the players and coaching staff. However, Holiday says that is not the case.

"We approach every team like we have to beat them and that is how we have to approach Washington," he said. "Nothing has changed, we are just getting ready."
