Bryant grad makes Super Bowl visit a tradition

HOUSTON, Tex. (WPRI) — When Jason Hollis went to Bryant, was it the Dark Ages?

“We had one campus building that had cable, that anyone had to go to to watch games and stuff,” he told Eyewitness News anchor Kelly Sullivan Friday in Houston. “And no Internet or anything!”

Hollis said he’s originally from Connecticut, and lives in Iowa now, but is a Patriots fan and went to Bryant University — when it was still Bryant College.

Though the trip down from Iowa was a 15-hour drive — and that was even before getting tickets to the game — Jason said it’s always worth going.
