Brian Calhoun, Terrence Holt and Roy Williams of the Detroit Lions joined exempt bowlers from the Denny's Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) Tour Wednesday night at Taylor Lanes in Taylor, Mich., for the Columbia 300 Pro-Am.
The pro-am coincided with the 2006 Motor City Classic, the second stop on the Denny's PBA Tour, which began Thursday morning and runs through Sunday's live ESPN televised finals at 1 p.m. ET.
The three Lions bowled three games with a different exempt bowler paired with them for each game. The 2005-06 PBA World Point Rankings leader Norm Duke joined the three for the first game which saw Holt roll a high score of 223. The 2005-06 PBA Rookie of the Year Bill O'Neill paired up next with the bowlers, rolling a 230 to top Williams' 220. Chris Barnes, a fellow Texan of Williams, joined the three for a final game which saw the wide receiver give chase to Barnes' score before falling short in the end.
Williams, a third-year wide receiver from the University of Texas, is an avid bowler, listing his best game as 257 and has previously participated in ESPN’s “Bowling Night” competition. In seven games this season, Williams has 38 catches for 581 yards and three touchdowns.
Holt, who is in his fourth year with the Lions as a safety, has 33 tackles on the season to go along with his two interceptions and one fumble recovery. Calhoun, a rookie running back from the University of Wisconsin, was the Lions’ third-round draft pack in 2006.
Four more Columbia 300 Pro-Ams will be held at Taylor Lanes Saturday at 11:30 a.m., 2 p.m., 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. ET
