Hollick was a ruck rover, half back and occasional forward who joined Richmond from Sunraysia Football League club Irymple.[1] He was a regular fixture in the team in 1971 when he played 19 games, including Richmond's semi final win and preliminary final loss.[2] The following season he appeared in two further finals but was unable to make the premiership decider due to his national service training.[3]

Although signed by Melbourne in 1973, Hollick instead ended up at West Adelaide in the SANFL.[4] He won a Grogan Medal while at Queensland club Mayne in 1981.

Hollick's daughter Monique Hollick was drafted by Adelaide Football Club at the 2016 AFL Women's draft.[5]
