Texas all-stars defeat Nation team

EL PASO, Texas — LSU’s Trindon Holliday scored a pair of third-quarter touchdowns to help his Texas all-star team beat The Nation’s squad 36-17 on Saturday.

Holliday, a 5-foot-5 running back, scored first on a 67-yard pass from Ryan Perrilloux, a Jackson State senior quarterback, with 10:46 left in the third quarter. Holliday’s second trip to the end zone came about 5 minutes later on a 2-yard run.

Holliday, who is known more for his speed than his size, totaled 209 all-purpose yards, including 71 on four punt returns, to earn offensive player of the game honors.

“I knew that no one could catch me once I get a step off,” Holliday said.
