Holmen filled a much needed position on the UND roster: Long Snapper. UND had some issues at LS last season and needed to bring in another snapper to compete with those on the current roster. Holmen more than fills that need.
Holmen shows sound snapping fundamentals when you watch his highlights. It is obvious he has been taught well. Holmen has a easy fluid motion with no hitch in his windup before he releases the ball. He had an average snap time of 0.79 secs at the Kohl’s Camp, which is pretty good. His overall speed is decent and will be more than adequate for him to get down and cover on punts.
Holmen had a perfect year snapping for the his Father/Head Coach Barry Holmen, going 82 for 82 on his snaps. Not a botched snap in the bunch, according to his hudl stats. As a TE he also contributed 29 catches for 341 yards and 2 TD’s. Holmen was named First Team All-State at the Class 3A level in ND as a TE. On top of all that, he was a perfect 4.0 in the classroom and scored a 28 on the ACT test. Holmen also participates in basketball and baseball for the Magi.
