UNC LB Cole Holcomb Bringing Consistency

Cole Holcomb has emerged as a consistent contributor for the Heels' defense.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Andre Smith earned the ACC honors for his productivity last weekend, but fellow linebacker Cole Holcomb is not far behind. 

Holcomb, who is tied for third on the team with 16 tackles in the first two games, walked onto the Carolina team expecting minimal playing time. But he practiced with the mentality of a starter, and quickly realized that goal as a sophomore.

The Tar Heel linebacker squad might be lacking on experience, but it'l providing consistent effort, productivity and aggressive play, with Holcomb as a key contributor.
