This past weekend’s Champion Gridiron Kings 7-on-7 event was Virginia Tech-bound Holland Fisher ‘s last stop on the 2012 camp and combine circuit.  Despite playing the better part of the weekend with a deep thigh bruise, the Manchester (Midlothian, VA) rising senior linebacker/safety prospect said the Gridiron Kings was “great, actually.  I think there were a lot more athletes there than in The Opening.  This was the best of the best.  There were a lot of great players out there.”

The 6’2″, 200-pound Fisher played for the Midwest squad, which made it to the championship game before losing to the Southeast team.  He played alongside future Virginia Tech teammate Kendall Fuller.

“He’s a great kid, a great player,” Fisher said of Fuller, who announced his college choice in the second half of the championship game.  “Me and him, we’ve been to virtually every event together this summer.  We’ve developed a close relationship.  It’s great that we’ll be playing in the secondary together [at Virginia Tech].”

Prior to this past weekend in Lake Buena Vista (FL), Fisher and Fuller were last together in Blacksburg on July 14.  That day, Fisher was competing in Virginia Tech’s one-day camp while Fuller was making an unofficial visit.

“It was great.  I felt well at home,” Fisher said of his latest experience in Blacksburg.  “The coaches and I are really cool.  I thought I’d get there and show them what I can really do personally.  They had never seen me at camp.  I showed them what I got.  They said I did some great things out there.”
