Duke Denies Admission This Semester for Injured Receiver Blair Holliday

Last November, Blair Holliday and his family hoped he would be able to return to school this semester and reach another milestone in his recovery from a near-fatal personal watercraft accident. That won’t be possible, because his application for admission was denied by Duke. “He was really disappointed. He tried to not get out of bed, but I made him,” Leslie Holliday, his mother, said to the Ventura (Calif.) County Star. “He wanted to get back into school and get back to a normal life around his friends. His doctor at Shepherd Center was 100 percent behind him doing it, but I think Duke maybe feels it is looking out for his best interest, too, to make sure when he does come back he succeeds.”
