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.

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.
'I KNOW I COME FROM NUTHIN', BUT I'M NOT NUTHIN'
- WILLIAM HOLLIS
Our interview started with me asking Hollis if, considering where he is coming from, making the NFL was realistic. From there, the William Hollis Experience began.
"I think it's very realistic. I had a workout with the Toronto Argonauts going against about four different NFL-caliber tackles that played one year, two years in the NFL

I am the 1995 Teenage Heavyweight National Bodybuilding champion, editor for 3 popular fitness magazines and current popular newsletter, writer of nine feature length movies, creator of one television pilot, a published photographer/model and former stand up comedian as well as physique judge. I was honored to serve as an IFBB (International Federation of Bodybuilders) Official. Moving to Los Angeles from the east coast was a necessary step in my life that many can relate to when a dream calls to you and you simply can not ignore it. My hero was/is Tupac Shakur for teaching me to get off my behind and go for the dream. I consider myself as two persons: the writer side and the physique side. August, 2012 saw the release of my first (in a series) of training books and DVD.

Hollis Taylor visits PMPChannel and discusses the "First Queer Spirituality and Sacred Sexuality Community Blog" DiversiTree. A project that came about after Hollis's brief time working with Green Egg earlier this year, DivesiTree is a large platform blog community project focusing on spirituality and LGBTQIA issues. The site went live on 20 March 2015.
From the site's description: "Bringing together some of the most spiritually diverse queer sex positive people to write on the evolutionary movement towards inclusive spirituality.[...] DiversiTree presents a group of writers that have found their own paths to inclusive spirituality and today they are ready to share their experiences with you. We intend to increase understanding of a variety of perspectives and to create a place of celebratory diversity. Our differences are what makes this world such a fascinating place and when we celebrate them we are able to easily lift each other up in a way that can bring success for everyone. Like a tree we respect, support and are at least some part connected to each and every branch of spirituality."
KaliSara and RevKess will be talking with Hollis about the platform, inspiration, and some of the contributors for the site. RevKess will be writing for the site as well.

Ever since the US Supreme Court muddled the waters of our sovereignty in the "Marshall Decisions", our Chahta Okla have remained politically unstable with outside influences upon our traditional form of self-governance. Even in recent years, the administration has been clouded of the Choctaw Nation has been clouded with corruption, election fraud/tampering, favoritism,and rewarding themselves enormously. Just before the election year, a former official, Jason Merida, was convicted of corruption and fraud, and sentenced to 12 years. The trial brought out testimony of widespread corruption, fraud and abuse of office. Efforts were underway to reform the constitution and election rules. Concurrently, Batton created a task force to provide election recommendations, which brought objections from citizens at the council meeting because it failed to resolve the problems.
Recently, an issue arose challenging Wards residency. Election rules require a candidate must have lived in the district one year prior to the filing for office (May 2015). Documents appeared in the social media of Facebook indicating he was a resident of District 1 one month prior to filing for office. An election hearing was called for August 19th after the opposing candiate, Mike Amos contested the validity of Wards qualification to run for office. They met at 10 AM and and said they would give their decision by written reply.
At the beginning of the election, three candidates were challenged on their residency. One survived the board, while the other two didn't. Alicia Nevaquaya would have been an opponent of Wards and Amos, as well as several others for the council seat. Questions have been raised about the boards thoroughness.
This evening I spoke with Mr. Ward about this issue and invited him to come on the show and tell us what he knows. He agreed to come on. I hope other guests versed on this subject do so as well.
This week we are joined by Elece Hollis, writer and president of the Fellowship of Christian Writers in Tulsa, Oklahoma. We will be speaking about The Successful Writer Conference which will occur on May 29th-30th. We will also emphasize the value of community with fellow writers.

WHY YOU SHOULD TAKE RISKS AND NOT RELY ON YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES TO DICTATE WHAT YOU CAN HAVE. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF AND YOUR ABILITIES AND YOU CAN HAVE ANYTHING THAT YOU WANT.

THIS IS THE QUESTION YOU MUST ASK YOURSELF AND BELIEVE THAT WHAT IS PREFERRED CAN BE YOURS IF YOU BELIEVE.
