Holt rewrote the NC State record books, setting single game, single season and career records in almost every passing category. He also set an ACC record with 3,379 reception yards for his career. The two-time All-ACC performer was named the ACC Player of the Year and Offensive Player of the Year following his senior campaign, and was also a finalist for the Biletnikoff Award, honoring the nation's top wide receiver. His jersey was retired on Jan. 16, 1999 during halftime ceremonies of the final NC State-UNC basketball contest that was played in Reynolds Coliseum.
