Default Devonte Holloman Retiring with Neck Injury

Hate it for Holloman. He had the talent to be a great player. Sucks for him but hopefully he will find a job and stay healthy.

I hate to hear this; just a huge shame. It looked like he was in position to do great things with the Cowboys this year. Hope his recovery goes as quickly and smoothly as possible.

Did he get his degree?

If not, he needs to do that NOW, while he is recuperating from the neck injury.

Wasn't he in restaurant & hotel management?

Default Re: Devonte Holloman Retiring with Neck Injury

This sucks. Just heard this on the local Dallas ESPN radio here when I ran out for lunch.

They had very good things to say about Devonte and him being a great guy to be around, that these are the types of players that they feel for when this happens. He was making the most of his opportunity and was going to have a great chance this season to stand out. Jason Garrett said they want him around the organization and he is one of them. Maybe he could get a start on a coaching career?

They also were talking about USC and the SPUR position, some of the guys that have come from USC and the hybrid type players that we have had success with. They had good things to say. Not often you hear them talking about USC in Dallas.

Seems like he made a decent amount of money. As long as the injury won't limit him long-term in every day life, I'd say he'll be just fine. Good luck Dev, hope you find something productive to do post-football.

Very sorry to hear this as well. I remember when he and Gilmore switched to USC after Tommy Bowden got fired and how much havoc he used to bring when playing against them. He and Lattimore are the best to ever don the 21 on defense and offense respectively at USC.

Default Re: Devonte Holloman Retiring with Neck Injury

Devonte was part of the recent wave of very good talent that came to Carolina from the Rock Hill area (along with Gilmore).

I'll best remember his time as a Gamecock for the INT's he collected against Clem5on ('09 & '11 games--I believe).

Wish Holloman nothing but success as he starts the next chapter of his professional life.

GO COCKS!!
