All-time Mayo receiving leader Carter Holcomb commits to Winona State

All-time+Mayo+receiving+leader+Carter+Holcomb+commits+to+Winona+State

Carter Holcomb is going to be playing football with a very familiar teammate, as he has committed to Winona State and will join his brother, Mayo alum Cayden Holcomb. Carter has started at wide receiver since he was in 8th grade and has rewritten the record book for both Mayo and Minnesota. He is second all-time in Minnesota with 223 receptions, and 3618 receiving yards, as well as being 5th all-time with 43 receiving touchdowns. Those also serve as Mayo High School records. 

Carter Holcomb was voted to the Minnesota high school football all star game and was also the 2022 Offensive Player of the Year for Minnesota. In his senior year, he made 66 catches (sixth in the state) for 948 yards (11th in the state) and 11 touchdowns. In his junior year he had 72 receptions (third in state) for 1257 yards (2nd in state) and 18 touchdowns, which was 1st in state. 

Holcomb is also very accomplished in track and field, as last year he was 7th at State in the long jump, 3rd in 300 hurdles, and 6th in 110 hurdles. 

Choosing Winona St because “it is close to home, and I get to play with my brother,” Carter Holcomb is most excited to “get the chance to work [his] way up the depth chart to play and benefit the team.” He is working on “getting stronger and bigger to be able to create more space off the ball on a release.” He has plenty of work ahead of him in order to be prepared to go to camp in the summer. Winona State went 5-6 last year going 5-5 in the NSIC.  

His favorite moment in his high school career was “getting up early to lift and practice over the summer and winter with the boys.” In his time at Mayo High School, the football program has been very successful. After getting moved up a division, the team had a 3-5 record and got eliminated in the second round. In 2022 they won the section but lost in the first round of state. In 2021 they also lost in the first round in state, and in 2020 they lost in the section final. 

Carter Holcomb is leaving Mayo as one of the most decorated athletes in school history and with many school records in multiple sports.
