South Pointe welcomes back Stallion alumnus, DeVonte Holloman, as the new head coach of the Stallion football team.

Holloman attended South Pointe as a senior in 2008-09’, helping the team win S.C.’s AAAA state championship. He committed to the University of South Carolina after decommitting from Clemson University.

After pursuing a successful athletic and academic college career, Holloman was selected in the 6th round of the 2013 NFL draft, playing for the Cowboys. While playing against the Baltimore Ravens, he injured his neck, causing an early retirement from his athletic career.

Holloman began coaching the defensive line at Beaufort High School after his retirement in 2015, later gaining the title of head coach in 2017.

He officially replaced Strait Herron, South Pointe’s former head coach, on Feb. 11, 2019.

“I’m extremely excited to be home… some of the coaches that coached me are still here,” said Holloman when asked about what made him want to come back to South Pointe.

Holloman played under former head coach, Herron, helping him gain knowledge on his coaching style that lead the Stallions to six state championships.

“I’m here to help the kids become the best they can be in all areas of life,” said Holloman.

Holloman starts at South Pointe next week, Feb. 11, 2019. He takes the sport “one game at a time” and is excited for the upcoming spring season.
