Unfortunately for Cory, he did not have his best game on Wednesday. Holt and his offense struggled from the start and never got going. But while his offense for the West never got moving, Holt did show one thing: potential.
The Lexington gunslinger has all the tools to be a top-notch quarterback at the Division-I level. At 6'4, he's got the size. With good speed and agility, he's got the movement. And his arm - it's a cannon too. Add that to his work habits which helped mark his rapid development during his final years of high school, Holt could eventually end up being a very good quarterback in Blacksburg. And write this down: he will.
On the other side of the ball, Roanoke Rapids, NC native Jud Dunlevy kicked very well for the East. Dunlevy kicked off and also kicked field goals on Wednesday. And although he notes that he was disappointed in his kickoffs which landed around the endzone each time, Dunlevy showed a booming leg and good accuracy in warm-ups as well as in Wednesday night's All-Star showdown.
Dunlevy, whose mother is cousins with Coach Beamer's wife, put up the only points of the night for the East on his only field goal attempt of the night, a 43-yarder.
