Meet Coquitlam NFL star Jevon Holland at Vancouver autograph session

You can also snap a selfie with the Coquitlam safety on the Miami Dolphins at Lids on Robson Street on June 17.
Jevon Holland (#8) is an NFL defensive safety from Coquitlam, B.C., and plays for the Miami Dolphins.

You'll soon be able to take a photo with a "snowman" in the middle of summer.

That's the nickname given to Jevon Holland when he reached the professional football ranks; his number is eight (8) for the shape of a snowman, he's from Canada and he looks to ice the competition each time he takes the field.

The Coquitlam defensive safety's off-season schedule is bringing him back home next weekend for a meet-and-greet session with local fans.

Lids Canada, a sports hat and apparel retailer, will host Holland at its downtown Vancouver location on June 17.

There, fans will be able to ask for autographs from the 23-year-old athlete, as well as photos and a quick chat or two.

Holland is gearing up for his third season with the NFL's Miami Dolphins. Exhibition games start in August with the 2023-24 campaign officially kicking off Sept. 10 against the Chargers in Los Angeles.

He set a new personal record with 96 tackles in 17 regular-season games in his sophomore year.

With his aqua squad, Holland also added two more interceptions for four in his young career, along with four sacks — 1.5 from the 2022 season — and his first-ever forced fumble.

Miami finished 9-8 in the season, enough to reach the playoffs for the first time since 2016, but lost a close-knit wild-card battle 34-31 to the Buffalo Bills.

In that game, Holland recorded his first career playoff interception

Holland also has a big social media presence, whether that's with the team or doing his own thing as he has more than 147,000 followers on TikTok alone.

He's been seen rocking stylish, eye-popping outfits when entering stadiums, and even got his teammates to try and pronounce his hometown.

The University of Oregon Duck was drafted 36th overall by Miami in the 2021 NFL Draft, putting pen to paper on a four-year, rookie contract two months later worth more than $8.71 million.

Holland, son of former BC Lion Robert Holland, spent eight years in Coquitlam before his family moved to Oakland where he became a star at Bishop O'Dowd High School, rising to the 13th ranked safety in America in his senior year.

He'll be at the Robson Street Lids (681 Robson St.) for the June 17 meet-and-greet from noon to 3 p.m.
