AURORA | Overland senior Nick Holmes has been unexpectedly cleared to play with the Trailblazers boys basketball team. Holmes was diagnosed with a treatable form of bone cancer prior to the season, which meant he would have to sit out the year to avoid injury. But a second biopsy revealed he had a non-cancerous condition instead and so he was cleared medically. Watch his reaction and what he feels is ahead for him and his team for the rest of the season.
