To the delight of Tennessee fans everywhere, a former Vol so beloved during his playing days his football deeds were put to music returned to campus in 1998 as a sports administrator.
Six years later, Condredge Holloway still is the People's Choice, discharging player relations responsibilities on the Phillip Fulmer staff. The 50-year-old Assistant Athletics Director is assigned to deal with various issues that arise in the conduct of a major college football program.
Regardless of the turns his career may take, Holloway always will be associated in the minds of UT fans with the razzle-dazzle offense he quarterbacked during his undergraduate days of the 1970s.
"Go Holloway" was the name of the ballad saluting his talents that echoed throughout Big Orange Country during Holloway's three seasons (1972-74) as the Vols signal-caller. And "go" he did. Nicknamed The Artful Dodger, Holloway became a master of improvising, packing excitement into every play whether it developed into a pass or a ground-gaining scramble.
Consistent with his brilliant sports career, Holloway has been the recipient of numerous honors paying tribute to his singular skills in both football and baseball. He has been inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame, the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame and the UT Baseball Hall of Fame.
Other significant honors directed to Holloway include the Toronto Argonauts retiring his CFL jersey and the league naming him to the 125th Anniversary Team (1873-1998). In 1991, he was named the all-time quarterback at the end of the first century of UT football.
After leading Tennessee to three bowl appearances, Holloway went on to play 13 seasons in the CFL, passing for more than 25,000 yards in a career that took him to Ottawa, Toronto and British Columbia. He was named the league's MVP with the Toronto Argonauts in 1982.
After his pro career ended, Holloway returned to college and earned his degree at UT.
He is married to the former Courtney Haralson and is the father of Jasmine and Condredge III.
