Holtz’s Grandson Walking On at Texas
Make room for another Holtz in college football.
The grandson of legendary coach Lou Holtz and son of South Florida head man Skip Holtz, Trey Holtz, will be a walk-on at Texas this fall, according to the Tampa Bay Times on Tuesday.
“I’m really excited. It’s one of my dreams to play college football, and I’d like to coach when I get older,” the youngest Holtz told the newspaper. “They say it’s in my bloodlines, but it’s what I want to do. Texas is a great program, and I really can’t wait.”
The Times said that Trey of Tampa’s Plant High School strongly considered playing for his father at USF before choosing the Longhorns instead. According to the newspaper, he will be listed at quarterback but likely could play a role on special teams. Trey was a place-holder and punter at Plant.
Trey was also in the news in 2010 for allegedly threatening a high school student involved with a love interest of his.
We know what this latest news means for ESPN viewers: Lou Holtz (pictured) most likely will predict Notre Dame-Texas as your national title game for the next four years.
