VONNIE HOLLIDAY SIGNS a campers cleat at the conclusion of last weeks Vonnie Holliday Little Bulldogs Football camp which the former Camden High standout sponsors each year with the KCRD and the Camden High football staff.
While he had to wedge his 6-foot-5, 285-pound frame into a desk made for the average-sized high school student, Vonnie Holliday has not outgrown playing the game he loves.As he signed football cards of himself, which he would distribute to youngsters who attended the Vonnie Holliday Little Bulldog Football Camp at Camden High School last week, the session’s namesake wanted to chat about his future and the direction which it could go. It was about a year ago when the 1994 CHS graduate told youngsters at his camp that the upcoming National Football League season would be his last. He had more than doubled the playing career of many an NFLer; playing fifteen seasons in a league in which the average career lasts but six seasons.On that warm morning nearly a year ago, while seated inside the visitors’ locker room at Zemp Stadium, Holliday talked about the physical toll playing the game he loved had taken on his body.
