From reality TV, to real life job...

Posted By: Coleman Swierc

San Antonio, Texas (KLTV) - KLTV 7 Sports Director Ryan Peterson spent a few minutes with "4th and Long" winner Jesse Holly, and asked him about trying to go from reality tv, to NFL wide receiver.

Q - You have probably been asked this a thousand times, what has all of this mean from an unknown to kind of a mini celebrity?  

A - "Some body said over there that I was living a dream, I told them that it was exactly right, and that I dont plan on waking up any time soon."

" This is just a tremendous situation, and I am blessed, I really really am, to be here and to have this opportunity and I want to take full advantage of it, so everytime I go onto the field, I am going to give it all I have until the last one blows."

Q - When Michael Irvin says that he thinks you are good enough to make the team, that has to give you confidence doesn't it?

A - "That gives me a great amount of confidence, coming from a hall of famer like Michael, having someone in your corner, pushing you, coaching you, always in your ear, it is just a tremendous asset and again, I am thankful to have him."

Q - Are you tired of the interviews, or do you kind of like it?

A - "I never get tired of it, this is great, this is awesome."

    The John Tyler Lions always seem to look sharp in their uniforms. But thanks to East Texas lawyer Keith Miller, the Lions will look better and play safer. Helmets that advertise lowering the impact of hits, and possibly reduce the amount of concussions, come with a hefty price-tag. Miller's donation of 7,500 dollars, will go to help the lions cover that cost. "Keith Miller's been a big sponsor of John Tyler High School football program for years now.  I know it's...More >>
