Report: Jeremiah Holloman dismissed from UGA football team
Junior wide receiver Jeremiah Holloman has been dismissed from the UGA football team, according to a report by The Covington News.
Per the report, Holloman is the subject of an assault against a female that occurred after the G-Day Game in 2018. The victim of the assault filed a report with the University of Georgia Police Department on June 2, 2019.
The incident report indicates that Holloman choked the victim and later punched her in the face. She reportedly went to Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center after the incident and received six stitches.
“(The victim) stated that (the brother) walked in at this point and pulled the suspect (Holloman) off her,” according to the report. “(The victim) stated she got behind (the brother) for protection. (The victim) stated the suspect (Holloman) then reached over (the brother) and punched her in the face.”
UGA Athletics has not issued an official statement on the dismissal of Jeremiah Holloman, but The Covington News reached out to head coach Kirby Smart, who offered a comment.
“Jeremiah Holloman no longer represents the University of Georgia football program,” Coach Kirby Smart said in a statement. “We expect every member of our team to uphold the highest standards and values of the University of Georgia and Georgia football. It is disappointing when this does not happen.”
As a sophomore for the Georgia Bulldogs, Holloman caught 24 passes for 418 yards and five touchdowns.
Georgia is scheduled to open the 2019 season on Saturday, August 31 at the Vanderbilt Commodores. The game will be televised by the SEC Network at 7:30pm ET.
