J.J. Holliday bought his first home, with the help of his mom, as a college junior. He called it an investment.

He wants to buy another, this time on his own, in the next five years. He’ll rent it out for a while, and then sell it for a tidy profit.

Holliday has lofty goals.

And isn’t that awesome?

In a world littered with athletes who don’t know when, or how, to move on, the former Santa Rita High School star wideout has a plan.

Rather than run out on the field in front of 50,000 screaming fans in the fall, he’s started a 20-hour-per-week internship at ADP.

It took him six months to score the gig with the outsourcing firm’s Phoenix office. He hopes it turns into a full-time job when he graduates this spring.
