Class Act

Torry Holt, the Jaguars new Wide Receiver, took time out of his undoubtedly busy schedule to write this letter to all Rams fans.

To the St. Louis Rams Fans:

As I begin the next chapter of my career, I want to thank you for your continuous support during my 10 years in St. Louis. When I was drafted by the Rams in 1999, you showed me and my family so much love and encouragement, and we greatly appreciate it still to this day.

Your excitement and enthusiasm for the Rams made the Edward Jones Dome one of the toughest venues in the NFL for opposing teams. You were instrumental in our runs to Super Bowl XXXIV and Super Bowl XXXVI.

Thank you to the Rams organization for giving me the opportunity to be a wide receiver in the National Football League. From when I first began playing football at age seven, I dreamed of playing in the NFL and the Rams helped make that dream a reality. Thank you to everyone in the organization, past and present, for their kindness and support throughout my time as a Ram.

I would also like to thank all of my coaches at the Rams who helped shape and develop me into the player that I am today.

Finally, I would like to thank all of my teammates from when I began with the Rams to now, for their loyalty and support. Without them, I would have not been able to achieve some of the successes that I have reached during my career.

I will miss the fans, coaches and teammates, but I will always have two important memories — being part of a Super Bowl Championship team and representing the remarkable city of St. Louis to the world!

Thank you again,
Torry “Big Game” Holt

Now that right there is class. You don’t see too many of these, considering one of the main reasons players leave is to collect a bigger paycheck- You certainly don’t see T.O. writing a letter to thank the fans, coaches and organizational members of the Cowboys (or 49er’s or Eagles + Donovan McNabb, for that matter). I think this should just emphasize why the Rams will be drafting for character players this Saturday; a player who enjoys the people of the town and organization will be much more willing to play and learn the game of football. The hats off to you Torry, thank you for the 10 great years.

    I second that.

    We’ll miss you “Big Game”.

  2. Great stuff from THolt. Shame to see him going elsewhere, look forward to seeing his name in Canton someday.

    Thanks for your many years of dedication. You are truly a marvel, Torry. I may have to start watching more Jags games. P.S. Thanks for not joining Ike or going to another rival.
