Caleb Holley FootballFormer East High football player Caleb Holley has signed with the Buffalo Bills after rookie minicamp.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound wide receiver was an undrafted free agent and the only tryout player from the minicamp who ended up getting signed to the team’s 90-man roster.

Holley finished his college career at East Central University in Oklahoma after playing his first two years at San Francisco City.

Last season, the Anchorage native set a school record at East Central with 970 receiving yards on 55 catches. He hauled in nine touchdowns.

He also set the school’s single-game record with 224 yards against Southern Nazarene.

Holley earned second-team All-Great American Conference honors.

At Bills rookie minicamp, Holley’s route-running and ball-catching skills reportedly made him the most consistent receiver behind No. 4 pick Sammy Watkins.

Holley is the second Anchorage football player to sign with an NFL team this month. Former BYU defensive end Eathyn Manumaleuna signed with the New York Giants.
