Injured Long Beach WR ready to go

One of the fastest wideouts in the country this year was Long Beach City College's Ben Holloway (5-11, 180). He was primed for a big season with the Vikings, but a patella tendon injury sidelined him for all but four games.

"It's just an injury that a lot of track guys get when they run too much and don't rest," Holloway told "I've been going to rehab and it will be totally healed next month. I think that's why a lot of schools haven't been contacting me.

"My coaches and I are getting my freshman film out because that was pretty good. I didn't have any tape of me this year because of the injury."

Holloway said schools like San Diego State, Wyoming, Eastern Michigan and Central Michigan have made requests for film and he's hoping to get some offers after they have a chance to watch his film and see what he can do.

"I can return punts or kicks, basically whatever a team wants me to do I'll do," Holloway said. "I'm good with the ball in my hands. I can run after the catch and I can run past people with my speed."

Holloway boasts a 4.3 forty time and said even with his injury he's still running 4.45's.

"I can't wait to get back out there and show people what I can do," Holloway said. "I just finished my two-year degree so I was hoping to sign in December, but it looks like I'll have to wait until February.

"I'll go to school part-time while I'm working out and getting back in football shape and hopefully I'll have some offers to choose from by then."

Holloway will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
