Thomas Holley receives Under Armour All-American jersey — Cuse Clicks

When Thomas Holley transferred last year from Christ the King to Lincoln HS for his junior year, the former middle school basketball prodigy was reuniting with his AAU coach, Dwayne (Tiny) Morton. But Morton recognized the 6-4, 300-pound athlete had potential to be a force on the football field. So Morton called Lincoln football coach Shawn O’Connor and told him to give Holley a look. Holley, now a senior, was presented with an Under Armour All-American jersey at Lincoln Tuesday in a gym packed with family, friends and students. He’ll be one of 80 seniors to play in the All-American game on ESPN Jan. 2 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla. at 4 p.m. Holley is Lincoln’s fourth All-American in football.
