William Hollis The story of William Hollis is more about persevering through life than it is about football. Hollis, who hopes to find his way into an NFL camp this summer, is the ultimate underdog. His story, and his determination, make him impossible not to root for. ? TWEET (235) ?SHARE (71) William Hollis may never make it in the NFL. If he does, however, Hollis has led the kind of life that someone will turn into a movie. Hollis, 23, is a 6-foot-1, 245-pound linebacker/defensive end who last played for Tuskegee University, which plays in the Division 2 Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. He began his career at Clark Atlanta, also a member of the SIAC. To say Hollis' life has taken several detours along his road to trying to earn the attention of NFL teams is an understatement. You don't so much interview Hollis as you simply turn on the recorder, ask him to tell his story and then just get out of the way and listen. Hollis has played only one season of football since 2009, and that as a reserve who barely saw the field for Tuskegee in 2012. He claims the Tuskegee coaching staff there refused to play him because, though he walked on and earned a scholarship, they had not recruited him.
