NC State legend Torry Holt will be inducted as a member of the 2019 College Football Hall of Fame class. I’m not sure why it had to take 20 years, but at least he’s finally getting his due.
Holt set a bunch of records while playing for the Wolfpack, and it’s a credit to his talent that several of them endure to this day, even though he never had the added benefit of 12-13 game seasons that everybody gets now. From GoPack.com:
The 1998 ACC Player of the Year and Offensive Player of the Year, Holt 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. He held the Wolfpack record for single-season receptions (88 in 1998) until Jakobi Meyers broke the mark this past season and his 15 catches against Wake Forest in 1998 is still tied for the top mark in school history.
Pretty good! Congrats to Torry on the well-deserved honor. Is the NFL Hall of Fame next?
