Throughout his three-year career with the Jaguars (2017), 49ers (2018-19), and New York Giants (2019), he has appeared in 18 career games. Holba was signed to the Los Angeles Rams practice squad on December 9, 2020.

A 26-year-old native of Louisville, KY, Holba attended the University of Louisville. In four years with the Cardinals (2013-16), he appeared in 26 games and served as the primary long snapper during his junior and senior seasons, registering three special teams tackles.
