In tragic news today, Boston College announced that former defensive lineman Max Holloway passed away in a car accident in Florida

"We are all shocked and saddened to hear of the tragic news," said Boston College head coach Steve Addazio. "Our thoughts and prayers are with Max's family and loved ones during this difficult time."

Holloway came to the Eagles in 2009 after being recruited by the staff of former head coach Jeff Jagodzinski. Max finished fourth on the team in 2011 in tackles (47) and totaled eight TFLs, 2.5 sacks, three pass break-ups and one interception. For his career, he played in 34 games and finished with 99 tackles, 24.5 tackles for loss and 7.5 sacks.

He played for three seasons for the Eagles when he declared for the 2012 NFL draft but wasn’t drafted by a team.

This is just heartbreaking news, a young man has lost his life. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
