Trindon Holliday earns AFC Special Teams Player of the Month award

Elsa

The gold keeps coming in for Broncos players!

Via denverbroncos.com:

Holliday was the only player in the NFL to record more than one special-teams touchdown in September. He returned 13 punts for 191 yards, including an 81-yard touchdown and three kickoff returns for 139 yards (46.3 avg.) including his most recent touchdown - a 105-yard touchdown return against the Eagles.

Holliday has scored a touchdown on a return at a pace of one per 3.5 games played - the best in NFL history.

"I've been impressed with him," Head Coach John Fox said Monday after the Eagles win. "He returned two kicks in a playoff game, which has never been done before. He's got a chance to be special. He's worked very hard; he's fielding the ball way more consistently. I think his speed, quickness and acceleration is pretty well documented."

Holliday's honor is the seventh Broncos Special Teams Player of the Month in team history. He is the first Bronco to win the award since Matt Prater in December of 2011.

This is Trindon's first Player of the Month award, but I think it is safe to say it won't be his last.  Mr. Electric sits 2nd behind Rick Upchurch in franchise history for most career return touchdowns.  Upchurch has 8.  Trindon will tie or break that record this year, guaranteed!
