Holliday AFC Special-Teams Player of the Month

Posted Oct 3, 2013

Holliday averaged 14.7 yards per punt return and 46.3 yards per kick returning and scored twice in September.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – Though twice named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week, September marks the first time Trindon Holliday has been named Player of the Month – and quite the month it was.

Holliday was the only player in the NFL to record more than one special-teams touchdown in September. He returned 13 punts for 191 yards, including an 81-yard touchdown and three kickoff returns for 139 yards (46.3 avg.) including his most recent touchdown – a 105-yard touchdown return against the Eagles.

Holliday has scored a touchdown on a return at a pace of one per 3.5 games played – the best in NFL history.

“I’ve been impressed with him,” Head Coach John Fox said Monday after the Eagles win. “He returned two kicks in a playoff game, which has never been done before. He’s got a chance to be special. He’s worked very hard; he’s fielding the ball way more consistently. I think his speed, quickness and acceleration is pretty well documented.”

With two this season, Holliday now has six special-teams scores in his career, postseason included, putting him second on the Broncos’ all-time list.

He said after the win against Philadelphia that once he gets past the first wave and just sees the kick in front of him, he feels like he can take it all the way. Against the Eagles, that’s just what he saw with the help of a key block from David Bruton.

“We had a good game plan,” Holliday said. “My guys did a good job blocking for me. We had a good game plan coming into this game and we just made it happen.”

Holliday's honor is the seventh Broncos Special Teams Player of the Month in team history. He is the first Bronco to win the award since Matt Prater in December of 2011.

In addition to Holliday's honor, the league also announced that quarterback Peyton Manning was named the AFC Offensive Player of the Month. This is the first time in Broncos history that two players have earned player of the month recognition in the same month.

Holliday's success has driven interest in GMC's Run One Back contest, which awards a fan a two-year lease on a 2014 GMC Sierra if the first kickoff that the Broncos receive is returned for a touchdown. Visit DenverBroncos.com/GMC to sign up for the contest.
