Bend Native Gets Ready to Play in First NFL Regular Season Game

Less than a week ago, Mountain View High School alum Jacob Hollister wasn’t sure if he would make the team, but tonight, he will step on the field as a member of the New England Patriots in their season debut against the The Kansas City Chiefs.
Jacob is the 3rd-string tight end, who is expected to get some snaps on offense, but he will mostly play a key role on special teams during kickoffs and punts.
Jacob’s twin brother, Cody, made the Patriots practice squad and has been preparing all week but will not suit up for tonight’s game.
Central Oregon Daily’s Allison Roecker is in Foxborough, Massachusetts and got a chance to talk to Jacob and Cody before tonight’s game.
