Honoring Torry Holt Holt becomes the sixth Wolfpack player to be inducted into the National Football Foundation (NFF) & College Hall of Fame

Record-setting wide receiver Torry Holt will be honored during in-game ceremonies prior to this Thursday's game versus Syracuse to celebrate his upcoming induction into the National Football Foundation (NFF) & College Hall of Fame.

Back in January, the NFF & College Hall of Fame announced Holt was named to the 2019 College Football Hall of Fame Class. Holt joins 12 other first-team All-America players and two standout coaches who were selected from a national ballot of 76 All-America players and six elite coaches from the Football Bowl Subdivision and 100 players and 32 coaches from the divisional ranks.

Holt and the rest of the 2019 College Football Hall of Fame Class will be officially inducted during the 62nd NFF Annual Awards Dinner on Dec. 10, 2019, at the New York Hilton Midtown and his accomplishments will be forever immortalized at the College Football Hall of Fame in Atlanta.

Holt rewrote the NC State and ACC record books during his career with the Wolfpack, which spanned from 1995-98. A consensus first-team All-American in 1998, he was a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award and the only receiver in the top 10 of the Heisman Trophy voting that year.

Holt was a two-time All-American and named both the 1998 ACC Player of the Year and the Offensive Player of the Year. He was also two-time first-team All-ACC selection at wide receiver and earned first team all-conference laurels as a punt returner in 1998.

The Gibsonville native's career receiving yards were a then-ACC record (now rank sixth), and he still holds conference marks for single-season receiving yards (1,604), single-season receiving yards per game (145.8) and single-game touchdown receptions (5).

Holt's No. 81 jersey was retired following his career and the team named its Offensive MVP award in his honor. He was named an ACC Football Legend in 2012. Holt was joined by his head coach Mike O'Cain and then-AD Les Robinson.

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 seven-time 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 finished his NFL career with 920 receptions for 13,382 yards and 74 touchdowns.
Holt was inducted into the NC State Athletic Hall of Fame in 2013.

Holt remains busy with Holt Brothers Inc., which he founded with his brother, Terrence, who also played at NC State and was an All-American at safety. Their companies include Holt Brothers Construction, where he 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.

Holt will be joined in the festivities by his wife Carla and their children Brayden (a freshman at NC State), Brianna and Brooklyn.
