THIS IS EPISODE 504 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Cody Hollister is currently playing wide receiver in the NFL with the Tennessee Titans. He played his college ball at Arkansas, appearing in 29 games with 12 starts. As a senior in 2016, Hollister shared the team’s Special Teams MVP award with punter Toby Baker after tallying eight tackles on the punt and kickoff teams.
He went undrafted in 2017 but later signed with the New England Patriots. Hollister spent the 2017 season on the practice squad, and in 2018 suffered a back injury that kept him on New England’s non-football injury list. He was a member of the Pats’ 2018 Super Bowl-winning team that defeated the Los Angeles Rams, 13-3.
In 2019, Hollister signed with the Tennessee Titans and he was promoted to the active roster on November 10, 2019, for a game against Kansas City. In Week 13, he caught his first two NFL receptions in a win against Indianapolis.
His twin brother, Jacob, is also in the NFL, currently playing tight end with the Seattle Seahawks.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Cody about his powerful journey to Jesus, the bond he has with his twin brother, his struggle with depression and anxiety in college at Arkansas, and how he remains content in an uncertain football career. Jacob is also a musician and plays an original song, “May the Lord,” at the end of our conversation.
