Offense

Guards

LG Will Holden (2013– 2016)

After redshirting in 2012, his first year on campus, Holden contributed as a backup offensive lineman, playing both guard and tackle, and was a special teamer.

In his Sophomore campaign Will Holden played in all 12 games and had his first career start versus Ole Miss. He recorded 26 pancake blocks and 8 domination blocks. In 2015 he became a staple of the Commodore offensive line. He started every game and played more than 870 offensive snaps, during which he accumulated 33 pancake blocks and 13 domination blocks.

During his senior season Holden shined. He started all 13 games and extended his starts streak to 37 games. He also was part of the unit that led to Ralph Webb becoming the school’s all time leading rusher. He earned SEC offensive lineman of the week honors after his performance against Ole Miss. He was also named second team all-SEC in 2016.

Holden went on to be drafted in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL draft by the Arizona Cardinals.


RG – Bruno Reagan (2015-2018)

Bruno Reagan did not see the field his Freshman year and contributed as a scout team lineman. In 2015, his redshirt Freshman season, Reagan played in 8 games and started at right guard in games versus Texas A&M and Tennessee. He recorded 210 snaps, 12 pancake blocks, and 10 domination blocks.

During his Sophomore year Reagan became an every down lineman, starting every game and playing 90% of the team’s offensive snaps at right guard.

In 2017 he was thrust into the role of starting center after starting 15 consecutive games at right guard. He started 12 games at center during his Junior season and recorded 30 domination blocks. He also earned SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week honors after his performance against the orange team to the east.

During Reagan’s senior campaign he showed off his versatility. He extended his starts streak to 40 games by starting all 13 games during the season. He played over 98% of the team’s offensive snaps and registered 14 pancake blocks and 26 domination blocks while playing 5 games at right guard and 8 games at center.

Somehow he went undrafted and was not picked up by an NFL team, instead he played in the XFL for the St. Louis Battlehawks.

PSA TO ALL NFL TEAMS: GIVE THIS GUY A SHOT IN TRAINING CAMP OR HE WILL JUDO SLAM YOU.
