Super Bowl champion Torry Holt earned his nickname “Big Game.” A human highlight reel at North Carolina State and across his 11 seasons in the NFL, Holt is currently an NFL analyst, appearing on programs including SiriusXM’s NFL Radio, The Herd, Bleacher Report, and many others.
A consensus First Team All-American in 1998, Holt was a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award and the only receiver in the top 10 of the Heisman Trophy voting that year. The 1998 ACC Player of the Year and Offensive Player of the Year remains NC State’s all-time leader in career (3,379), single-season (1,604 in 1998) and single-game (255 vs. Baylor, 1998) receiving yards as well as single-season (88 in 1998) and single-game (15 vs. Wake Forest, 1998) receptions. A 2x First Team All-ACC selection at wide receiver, Holt also earned first team all-conference laurels as a punt returner in 1998 and led the Wolfpack to a berth in the MicronPC Bowl.
A member of the NC State Athletic Hall of Fame, Holt’s No. 81 jersey was retired by the school, and the team named its Offensive MVP award in his honor. He was named an ACC Football Legend in 2012.
The St. Louis Rams selected Holt with the sixth overall pick in the 1999 NFL Draft, and he played for the franchise from 1999-2008 before a final season with the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2009. The 7x Pro Bowl selection led the Rams to a victory in Super Bowl XXXIV following his rookie season. A member of the NFL All-Decade Team for the 2000s, Holt retired from the league with the 10th most receiving yards in history.
Holt remains busy with Holt Brothers Inc., which he founded with his brother, Terrence, who also played at NC State. Their companies include Holt Brothers Construction (Torry serves as vice president), Holt Brothers Football Camps and the Holt Brothers Foundation. Torry serves as president of the foundation, which supports programs for children who have a parent with cancer.Less
