17 Year Navy Vet Makes NCAA Baseball Debut

34-year-old Brian Holcomb had a dream come true earlier this spring when he started a game for the Jacksonville University Baseball team. “We are excited and proud to give Brian Holcomb the start,” said Head Coach Tim Montez. “Even if it’s for one batter, it’s the least we can do for a young man who has served his country with pride and unwavering dedication.” Working on his nursing degree so he can return to service with more knowledge to serve his country, Holcomb lived out his dream on the mound. Brian said “I’m like a little freshman trying to get that spot and do some damage out there on the mound. Where I am at in my life, I’ve surpassed a lot of my dreams.”
