In our "Football Player Radar" Series we highlight promising players that are flying below the radar.  

Jalen had an outstanding career as a two-year starter at running back for Bethany College. During his time with Bethany, he was an all-purpose back capable of contributing as a receiver out of the backfield and as a blocker.

Q&A with Jalen Holmes

Q: What was your best game in college or pro?
My best game in college was during my junior year against Grove City. With the help of my wonderful offensive linemen, I was able to break the single-game rushing record for the school and conference with 341 yards and four touchdowns.

Q: What was your favorite NFL team growing up?
My favorite NFL team was and still is the Los Angeles Chargers.

Q: Who was your favorite NFL player?
One of the greatest running backs of all time--LaDainian Tomlinson

Q: Which current NFL player most resembles you?
I would have to say, Darren Sproles.

Q: What would your former teammates say about you?
They would say that I am a team player that gives his maximum effort on every play, and that I will put my body on the line to win a game!

Q: What are you presently doing as far as training?
Along with working out, I coach Jr high football where I can use my knowledge of the game to help the next generation be better players.

Q: What is your favorite Combine drill?
 I have always been fond of the 3-Cone Drill.

Q: What do you need to do to take your football career to the next level?
I need to get in front of scouts so that I can show them that I have an elite skill set; that I have what it takes to play at the highest level! I also need other pro athletes to train with to help push me to the best that I can be!

Q: What would be your pitch to NFL scouts?
My work ethic will not allow me to be anything other than the best. I am a team player and a leader with an impeccable character on and off the field. I believe in myself and will do what it takes to convince you to believe in me.

Q: What do you want to do besides football?
I would love to be a good mentor to kids and show them as long as you stay the course you will make it!

Q: What do you like to do for fun?
I like to pray for my family and the unfortunate, I like to read the Bible, I like to play video games, I like to hang out with friends and family, and I love to compete!

Q: If you could have dinner with any three people, dead or alive, who would they be and why?
I would have to say:
(1) Barry Sanders so that he can teach me a lot about the game, especially being a short running back and keeping defenders off balance,
(2) Eric Thomas, a motivational speaker, so that he can guide me in the right direction and help me do the right things off the field, like community service and being a great role model, and
(3) David Goggins, another motivation speaker, because he focuses on training the mind and sees doing so as being just as important as training the body.
Jalen is an intuitive running back with excellent instincts and a willingness to learn and develop as a player. He has the intelligence, work ethic, talent, heart, and determination to succeed as a professional football player. Jalen is the type of player that would be an asset to his team on and off the field.
