State Representative Terry Johnson (R-McDermott) yesterday presented a resolution honoring Brandan Holliday, from Hillsboro, as the 2017 Ohio Police and Fire Games traditional wrestling champion.

In June, Holliday participated in the Ohio Police and Fire Games, which is held annually in a different city around the state of Ohio. A deputy for the Adams County Sheriff’s Office, Holliday won the traditional wrestling gold medal in the competition after several matches. 

“Deputy Holliday has the heart of a servant—he has proven that time and again in his roles in the military and law enforcement,” Rep. Johnson said. “He also has the heart of a lion, and he proved that beyond any doubt through his success in these games. He is a great American, and it was an honor to recognize his achievement before the Ohio House of Representatives.”

According to its website, the Ohio Police and Fire Games aims to support the physical and mental fitness of the state’s active and retired law enforcement and firefighter personnel (and active and reserve military police and firefighters) by promoting the concept of physical fitness and sport within their communities through the development, organization and coordination of sporting events. 

Deputy Holliday had the opportunity to receive the resolution during House session at the Ohio Statehouse in Columbus.
