72 days, folks. If those were hours, it’d only be 3 days. Can we not hang on for three days?! To commemorate that number, today we’ll look at #72 on the Boise State roster—Dallas Holliday
#72, Dallas Holliday, RS Junior, OL
Weight: 314 lbs
High School: Oaks Christian High School, Westlake VIllage, California
How’d he get to The BlueTM?
Mr. Holliday came to the most beautiful field in all of football by way of Colorado State. Er, wait...San Diego State! Oh, wait no. It was neither of those, because although he did commit to both at different times, he eventually saw the light and made the right choice to parlay his 3 star pedigree into a signed letter of intent with the Broncos. He also held offers from the Buffs of Colorado and the Eagles of Boston College, among others. Being a two-time first-team honoree in your league—especially of it’s in that part of California—tends to rake in offers like that. He was also the Co-Offensive Lineman of the Year in the Marmonte League in 2017, not to mention a shot put champion.
I have to do this.
HGH Shane Williams-Rhodes

Last season, Holliday was primarily locked in a battle with Garrett Curran for playing time at left guard, but a new year, a new OC, and a new O-line coach could bring changes in that department. Holliday has appeared in 17 games over the last two seasons and has proven to be a valuable cog in the wheel that has been our O-line—the question remains whether he’ll seize that brass ring and become an entrenched starter in the...trenches. It’s rather safe to suggest that we’ll see plenty of Holliday this season, whether he’s named a starter or not...Tim Keane may do things a bit differently than Brad Bedell (pray!), but it’s likely he’ll still mix and match guys along the line and try to find the right mix for the game situation. I’m glad that we’ve got some experience on the line and I’m glad we get a fresh start in 2021.
Is he on Twitter?
I don’t think so(?), however, I’m suddenly very concerned about this footage of him being pancaked by a small child
Completely made up fact
You’ve learned about Dallas Holliday today, but what is the Dallas holiday? For my money, it’s the State Fair of Texas, where they deep fry butter. Like the butter mom used to make...just deep fried!
