It was obvious Rob Hollway couldn't do any worse in his first season as the head coach of The Out-of-Door Academy's varsity football program.

The program was coming off of back-to-back winless regular seasons.

Of course, Hollway wanted more that just snapping the long regular season losing streak. Hollway, who played college football at the University of Wyoming, had excellence in his background. He earned the 2016 Independent Football Coach of the Year award from the Florida Athletic Coaches Association after leading All Saints' Academy to its first-ever Sunshine State Athletic Conference state championship win, 25-16 over Canterbury High.
