One of The Ville’s best all-around athletes, Victor won eight varsity letters in football, track, and basketball.  In football, he excelled on offense as a halfback and as a linebacker on defense.  As a two-way player he averaged 39-40 minutes a game which was unusual in those days.  He is one of a few SHS football stars to be named 1st team All State All Groups.  He also received High School All American Honors.

Holloway was rated as one of the top linebackers in the state.  He gained over 1,200 yards on only 120 carries which means he averaged a first down every time he carried the ball.  He was rated as one of the best backs by the Star Ledger ever as well as possibly one of the best backs ever at Somerville.  He was recruited by most division one colleges and received a full scholarship to the University of Iowa.  Later in life he coached young kids in the Somerville youth program.
