Q&A with Del City’s Ricklian Holmes – Athlete Spotlight – Presented by Mike Muecke State Farm

Del City football player Ricklian Holmes gave an interview with VYPE.

VYPE: What are your personal goals for the year? 

My personal goals are to finish the school year with all A’s, and to win a State Championship In Track and Wrestling. 

VYPE: What is your favorite athletic memory? 

My favorite memory is making it to the State Championship this year. Just the fact of me being there, and starting as a Sophomore in a State Championship game was surreal.

VYPE: What teammate has left the biggest impression on you and why? 

I think my teammate Braelon A. left the biggest impression on me, because he really displayed what it means to be an Eagle.

VYPE: What is your favorite part of being on this team?

It’s the brotherhood that we have at Del City.

VYPE: Do you participate in any community service projects? 

Yes, I help the community through the National Honor Society, and with the Del City football team. 

VYPE: What Clubs or Campus groups are you involved with and why? 

I am in the National Honor Society, Football, Track, and Wrestling.

VYPE: What has your sport taught you that you use in your daily life? 

Football has taught me that when adversity hits, you need to keep moving forward to your goal.

VYPE: What is the best advice that anyone has given you?

Someone once told me that, no matter what happens, keep your head up!

VYPE: Who inspires you and why? 

I don’t have just one person that inspires me, there are many people in my life who inspire me to be a better person on and off the field. But I would say my Mom, Starr Holmes  inspires me the most, she is a strong black woman, that doesn’t let anyone stop her from getting to her goals.
