In 1984, his senior season, Holmes was voted the best defensive lineman in the Pac-10. A first-round draft pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he went on to play seven years in the NFL.

Marzetta Arlati played professionally for the Silver Bullets. Today, she works as a commentator for Fox Sports Net.
