His father, John, played quarterback at Ohio University and Western Michigan, and his cousin, Andrew, is an offensive lineman at the Air Force Academy. Holba redshirted in 2012, and played in only one game between the 2013 and 2014 seasons as four-year starter Grant Donovan had everything under control. He stepped in for Donovan in 2015 as the team's short and long-snapper, and held that job in 2016 as well. He made three tackles in coverage the past two years while providing consistent snaps for placements and punts.
