Professional Football Player. For eight seasons (1985 to 1992), he played at the defensive-end position in the National Football League with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Denver Broncos. Raised in the State of Washington, he proved to be a standout athlete while attending Timberline High School, as he participated in basketball and football, earning all-league honors at the latter. He continued to distinguish himself, as he played collegiate football at the University of Washington where he achieved All-American status twice (1983 and 1984). Selected by Tampa Bay during the 1st round (8th overall pick) of the 1985 NFL Draft, he appeared in 102 regular season games, recording 36.5 sacks. In 1989 while with Denver, he produced a career-high 9 sacks and was a contributor to the Broncos' squad which reached Super Bowl XXIV in January 1990. After retiring from football, Holmes worked as a national sales manager for a Washington-area company. He died from complications of diabetes and coronary issues. (bio by: C.S.)
