Holmes ready to hit the ground running in South Bend

South Bend, ID — Notre Dame is fully loaded in the backfield with Quarterback, Avery “Football” Davis and Halfback, CJ Holmes.  Both Holmes and Davis came out swinging on Twitter when they saw a fellow recruit de-committed to the Fighting Irish. The fans in South Bend don’t have to worry about loyalty with these two sure-fire playmakers.  

This was a big week for the duo; Avery racked up 573 total yards along with 6 touchdowns on Saturday night at AT&T Stadium.  CJ Holmes, the ever elusive and multi-faceted back, spent some time interviewing with the Gazette about all things Fighting Irish and beyond.
