Watch Penn State recruits Desmond Holmes, Damion Barber talk Big 33 rivalry, Blue-White experience
A friendly rivalry between Cardinal O’Hara offensive lineman Desmond Holmes and Harrisburg defensive end Damion Barber surfaced during Sunday’s Big 33 practice at Landis Field.
So we asked the two Penn State signees about the competition, and about some lasting memories from attending Saturday’s Blue-White game at Beaver Stadium.
Holmes, a 6-5, 325-pound tackle, lined up on the left side for the Pa. all-stars.
Barber, another 3-star recruit, tagged the Nittany Lions last February. He was a vital component in leading the Cougars to the PIAA Class 5A final in December.
Both will be counted on by Franklin Regional coach Greg Botta, who will skipper Pa. against Maryland in the 60th Big 33 Football Classic on June 17.
