Torry Holt is the first true ridiculous sports person that I can remember as an NC State fan; it was simply that he was good, but that he was so much better than anybody else, he could drive the outcome of games.
You don’t get to see a lot of people who are like this, and for Torry, this was process for sure—he learned quickly, and he was dominant once he figured out everything that was going on. That took the better part of his junior year, and by the time he was a senior, he was killing people.
As much as a wide receiver could carry a program, Torry carried NC State. That was some shit to watch, man. NC State as a team was all over the place, because the recruiting was on a mid-major level, and so you had losses to Baylor while you also had wins against Syracuse and Florida State.
But man, what a fucking journey that was.
