Brad Holmes says he is striving to hand Detroit Lions owner Sheila Hamp the Lombardi Trophy
While speaking during his pre-NFL Draft presser, Holmes talked about how excited Hamp is, and about how it is his desire to hand her the Lombardi Trophy after winning a Super Bowl.
“I know she’s excited,” Holmes said. “She’s really excited. I think she’s really proud of where we are at as an organization, just kind of how the process has gone along since the season ended with that big win up at Green Bay. I know that meant the world to her. Getting the game ball, that was awesome. How free agency went, and kind of this process leading up to the draft, she’s excited.”
“I was talking with her the other day, and I think she’s confident about the place that we’re at right now, and heading into this draft,” Holmes added. “I'm always happy to see her excited.
