RHS Basketball Standout’s senior season isn’t over yet

Richwood, WV – Yesterday it was reported that Richwood High School basketball standout Jacob Holliday hasn’t exactly finished his senior season just yet.

The senior guard has a great senior resume, and it continues to show signs of improvement and betterment.

Subsequent to averaging an astonishing 28.9 points per game amid his senior crusade, Holliday was chosen on the Class A All-State Second Team by the West Virginia Sports Writers Association. In addition to that, he was selected on the All-Coalfield Conference First Team. Alongside that, yesterday morning, WOAY Sports reported its 2018-19 All-WOAY Boys Basketball Team and Holliday was discovered fourth on the rundown. Notwithstanding those achievements, Jacob Holliday was picked to play for the Class A All-Star Team in the Scott Brown Memorial on April 13, 2019.

After asking Jacob, “When do you believe you will commit to a college?” He reacted by saying, “I’m looking to sign in two weeks or less,” at that point he included, “I have a thought where I’m going to sign, but I’m not 100 percent positive.”

Not startlingly, Holliday truly has various schools that are always calling his phone. He’s deciding between West Virginia Wesleyan College, Glenville State College, Concord University, Penn State Dubois, Salem University, Ohio Dominican University, and Barton College.

Holliday’s achievements represent themselves, however as a close friend of his, I’ll be the first to condemn any criticism that’s posed about him athletically or personally.

The previous summer, I can recollect when he’d consistently go to the gym at 10 in the morning, rest on the bleachers for a couple of hours, and finally return home at around 8 in the evening. All through basketball season, as one of the senior leaders on the team, Holliday would always look to elevate and engage you when you were struggling.

Whatever school Holliday chooses, they’ll get a point guard with a smooth handle, dangerous initial step, and a fluent, one-motion jump shot.

Good luck, Holliday. Keep doing what you do, and continue to represent the town of Richwood!
