Austin Peay State University’s senior all-purpose back Terrence Holt has been named to the third-team preseason All-America team by College Sporting News.
It is the fourth preseason All-America team Holt has been named to this summer. The senior from Nashville recently was named first-team Preseason FCS Senior Scout Bowl All American. He also was selected second-team Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) Preseason All-American kick return specialist by The Sports Network.
In addition, Holt was named second-team preseason All-America return specialist by Consensus Draft Services (CDS) and third-team FCS Preseason All-American return specialist by Phil Steele’s College Football Preview.
Holt also was named Ohio Valley Conference preseason Offensive Player of the Year.
Earlier this summer Holt was chosen by The Sports Network as one of the Top 10 FCS specialists and running backs.
Last season, Holt led the FCS in all-purpose yards per game (215.7), helped by his third straight season of at least 1,000 yards on kickoff returns. He already is the all-time FCS record holder for career kickoff return yardage (3,583 yards).
As a junior, he averaged for 25.4 yards on 47 kickoff returns, including a career-best 99-yard kickoff return for a score, and 12.4 yards on 16 punt returns, including a 71-yard return that proved to be the winning score against Tennessee State.
As a running back last season, Holt rushed for 793 yards (5.4 yards per carry) with a league-best 16 touchdowns.
