Aric Holman

Aric Holman, who helped lead the Red Devils to the 2015 KHSAA State Championship, is still chasing hoop dreams. Recently, with the debut of his own apparel line, he added fashion magnate to his list of accomplishments. 

As a Cravens Elementary student, Aric was a baseball star at Southern Little League and he also played on the all star team that won the 2010 Little League State Championship. 

As seen through his accomplishments, he is a great athlete. His family still lives here in Owensboro, Kentucky.

Coming out of high school, he was ranked 105th in the nation and second in the state of Kentucky. Holman then continued his athletic and academic career at Mississippi State University. As a power forward, he started 78 out of 124 games, and averaged, eight points, six rebounds, and one block per game. 

After playing four successful years of basketball for Mississippi State, he then went into the NBA draft but was not selected. He then signed an Exhibit 10 contract to the Los Angeles Lakers. This contract means a player will get the league minimum salary. 

One month later, he was waived off by the Lakers and was then later signed to the Dallas Mavericks D League team. He is now currently playing for the Dallas Mavericks. He never gave up on his dream, despite not being initially selected for the NBA.

Holman has recently joined the fashion industry and has come out with his own clothing brand. So far he has released six shirt designs which say “AH,”  his initials. These shirt prices rage from $15.00 – $28.00. 

Holman recently said, via text, that he hopes to come out with a winter collection, and eventually would like to add “small things like bags and phone cases.” 

Heather Black, OHS math teacher, has purchased some on his apparel. “I bought this to support him. I have two shirts, black and white and I like the logo and the material it is made of. ”
