Player of the Week: Demetri Holmes

KINSTON, N.C. (WITN) - Kinston football's standout sophomore wide receiver, cornerback and backup quarterback Demtri Holmes is our newest WITN Pepsi Player of the Week!

"As a starter on both sides of the ball," said Kinston head coach Ryan Gieselman. "That's big for a sophomore."

"Football has always been my favorite sport," said Holmes. "And just to see me work harder and get better? I'm actually loving it more."

According to Gieselman, Holmes will likely be the Vikings' starting quarterback next season.

"I think he is going to be a well-rounded player, a leader, and be very valuable the next two years," Gieselman added.

Holmes and the Vikings (12-0, 6-0) hit the road to face Northeastern (12-0, 5-0) in the third round of the 2018 2A Football Championships Friday night.
