Holland Has High Hopes for Senior Season

After dropping the season opener, Pittsburgh (Pa.) Perry Traditional Academy has shut out three straight opponents to better their record to 3-1 and remain undefeated in conference play.

"We want to win City [Championship] and hopefully win State [Championship]," said UNC commitment Cameron Holland. "We have a good chance to win Cities, because we've won Cities the past six years in a row. Winning States is a big goal and it's a lot of work."

Holland, a 6-foot-3 270-pound lineman, starts at both guard and defensive tackle for Perry Academy.

"Me, personally, I'm having a pretty good season," said Holland. "Things are looking up."

On the year, Holland has collected 24 tackles and two sacks.

For North Carolina, the school he verbally committed to in July, Holland is looking to play guard. He and the Tar Heels' coaches keep in touch regularly.

"Me and the coaches are texting like everyday and I talk to them once every couple of days," said Holland.

Holland has yet to attend a game in Kenan Stadium, but is looking to do so next month.

"I'm planning to go down there some time in October," said Holland. "It will be for my official visit. We haven't worked out which game it's going to be, yet."

Although firm in his pledge, Holland is leaving the door open to possibly take an official visit elsewhere.

"As of right now, North Carolina is my only visit lined up," said Holland. "I'm just kind of playing it by ear, but right now North Carolina is the only school I'm looking to go to [for an official visit]."

Holland hasn't been able to catch a UNC game on television, but is aware of their 1-3 start. Regardless, Holland said he is optimistic about the future at Chapel Hill given the coaching staff in place and the recruits they have coming in.
