Holley Mangold heading to London as part of Team USA

We’ll be pulling for all our Team USA athletes competing this summer in London. But don’t mind us if we’ve got a particular interest in seeing Holley Mangold succeed. As Jets fans have long known, Holley is the sister of Pro Bowl center and all-around good guy, Nick Mangold. We’ve followed Holley as she played youth football at the nose tackle position in Ohio. She then transitioned to the offensive line for the varsity football team at Archbishop Alter High, where she earned a letter for her play as a senior on a team that went all the way to the Ohio state championship game.¬† Now, she’s headed to London having earned a spot on Team USA for her powerlifting prowess.

Her relation to Nick would be one easy reason to root for her on the Olympic stage. Holley’s personality and approach to the sport, her chances in London and life in general, are among many others. This video should be required viewing for any youngsters¬† struggling with their self-esteem and in need a pick-me-up primer on how to attack things with confidence and a strong sense of self. Her self-deprecating spirit and sense of humor is something that clearly runs in the family.

Go Holley!
