Two men I’ve always been proud to call fellow Wolfpacker’s are Torry and Terrance Holt, not only for their on-the-field production but more for what they do off the field. They are wonderful examples of men who use the gifts and opportunities they’ve been given to give back to others instead of making it all about themselves.
As recently as 2008, brothers Torry and Terrence Holt were making their impact on an NFL field. Now, they are working something even bigger.
The former N.C. State standouts launched the annual Holt Brothers Football Camp at the WRAL soccer center Friday, marking the first time the former Wolfpack duo hosted the camp outside of their hometown of Gibsonville. An estimated 85 participants from 1st to 8th grade participated in Fridayâ€™s festivities. A smaller and more specialized group of high school students will prepare for a â€œHigh intensity skill specific trainingâ€ session today.
The camp is all about fun, but it serves a more important purpose.
…their message of encouragement goes beyond the hospital and cancer centers. For the young campers at the Holt brothersâ€™ football camp, Torry and Terrence help put dreams into perspective.
â€œPeople look at odds and say thatâ€™s thereâ€™s one in so many that will ever make it to the highest level and all that stuff – but why canâ€™t that one be you?â€ Terrence said. â€œWe try to impress upon the kids that you can create your own legacy and your own path.â€
