Duke WR in Critical Condition After Accident
Reports from the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission state that Holliday and another participant (teammate Jamison Crowder) unintentionally collided at around 5:00 p.m. Crowder did not require significant medical attention.
Holliday was airlifted straight to the UNC Trauma Center in Chapel Hill.
"First and foremost, our thoughts and prayers are with Blair, his parents, Leslie and Rick, and the entire Holliday family," said Duke football coach David Cutcliffe in a school release. "The Holliday family is one of tremendous character and strength, and is truly an inspiration for all of us.
"We ask that you continue to keep Blair and his family in your thoughts, and also respect their privacy in this time of concern."
The 19-year-old finished with three receptions for 30 yards as a freshman, but is expected to be a key contributor to the Blue Devils' pass-friendly offense in 2012. He earned the Most Improved Offensive Player award from Duke's spring session and is projected as a starter.
