Courtney Holder was Dallas Morning News’ Defensive Player of the Week!
After going into the half tied, Holderâ€™s 6-yard touchdown run and 45 yard fumble return touchdown accounted for 12 of Lake Dallasâ€™ 30 points in the second half. Courtney had 17 tackles, two assists, two tackles for loss, two quarterback pressures, and one fumble return for a touchdown.
â€œThe whole defense was tired at the time, and I feel like it really helped them out by picking the ball up and scoring instead of just falling on it. This was really important to me, because itâ€™s my senior year, and Iâ€™ve been playing with a lot of these guys since I was little,â€ Courtney said.
