Despite the loss, the gateway to the Super Bowl was now open and their sacred 7 Covenants of Team Champion, today known as The Patriot Way continues to drives the New England Patriots Dynasty.

As Executive Vice President of NFL Players Association, Holloway helped negotiate the new collective bargaining agreement that resulted in the NFL’s landmark Billion Dollar TV Contract. Holloway comes from a long line of prominent national leaders who helped shape America, he is the 5th generation of advisors to The White House and Homeland Security.
