Returning starter Hamilton Holliday, who started every game last year at center, will anchor the middle of the offensive line. Holliday is an excellent blocker who helps lead the offensive line and calls most blocking schemes during games. During his career at Vanderbilt he has played both guard and center.

Bradley Vierling (photo at right) had playing time in nine games last year backing up Holliday, but also played at guard as well due to injuries during the season. He has shown that he can contribute at both positions and appears ready to step in when called upon.

Nick Miller also will be working to contribute at center as well to go along with his long snapping play.
