He has now started 24 consecutive games at the position, and has 34 career starts as a Commodore lineman. Along with fellow senior Barrett Gouger, Holden accepted a greater leadership role on the Commodore offensive front when a third senior and projected starter, Andrew Jelks, went down with a season-ending leg injury for the second straight year. Holden contributed nearly 30 pancake blocks and 16 domination blocks this year, and was recognized for SEC Offensive Player of the Week honors after a stellar performance in Vanderbiltís 38-17 victory over Ole Miss in November. - Vanderbilt Football
