He credits his success to having discipline and keeping his priorities in order.

“If I had a homework assignment that I was being lackadaisical with I would have to do that homework assignment before I could go to practice or anything,” Holliday told ABC11. “So, I realized at a young age that academics always had to come before athletics.”

He is set to graduate in 2020.
