Redshirt freshman linebacker Grant Morgan is serving as the backup holder to safety Reid Miller, a rare position for a linebacker.
“One day Coach [Tanner] Burns was just kind of messing around and I went out there and held because I held for Greenwood,” Morgan said. “He said, ‘OK, we need a holder for second string so you’re it.’”
Morgan said linebackers coach Vernon Hargreaves laughed about the move.
“He’s never had a linebacker play holder,” he said. “I really like that. It’s something to kind of take your mind off of everything.”
