Last season, he helped the Cahillites go 23-5, advance to the Catholic League playoff final, win the District 12 Class AAAA title, and reach the second round of the PIAA Class AAAA tournament.

Holbrook netted 18 points, earning MVP honors, in Roman's 58-55 win over Martin Luther King in the District 12 final at St. Joseph's University.
