Blue Lights College sophomore Da’Quan Holloway has been recognized by the Bible College National Invitational Tournament as an Academic All-American.
Holloway, who sports a sparkling 4.0 GPA and is a mainstay on the Dean’s List, received the honor Saturday morning prior to the NIT chapel service in Jacksonville, Florida.
“From day one Da’Quan has shown tremendous dedication, loyalty, persistence, and effort, not only for this team, but for everything beyond the court as well,” according to Coach Mario Pharr. “I’m so proud of him and can’t wait to see what God has in store for him!”
“DaQuan is truly a model student who has become a recognized leader of our students,” said BLC president Jacques Gilbert. “His academic focus while managing a demanding athletic and employment schedule is extraordinary. I’m proud of this achievement for Da’Quan.”
In addition to Holloway, sophomores Kenny Anderson, Jr. and Christian Baker were also recognized along with the seniors from four-year colleges participating in the tournament.
