In Memory of E.J. Holub 1938-2019

E.J. Holub was a two-time (1959, 1960) All-America center at Texas Tech who often doubled on defense as a linebacker. Holub was a captain of all-star squads in the East-West Shrine game and the Senior bowl. He was named outstanding lineman in the Shrine game and also made its all-time honor squad. He played pro football with the Dallas Texans (1961-62) and Kansas City Chiefs (1963-70) at linebacker, but because of knee injuries he later moved to center. He was All-Pro in the American Football League and started in Super Bowls I and IV, once as a linebacker and once as a center. He is a member of the Texas Tech Hall of Fame and the Kansas City Chiefs Hall of Fame. Holub was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame in 1982. E.J. Holub
