His status as arguably the best middle blocker in the sport and his journey back to the national team is marked by his undying passion for the sport. Born with a natural talent and interest in volleyball, Holt's unexpected return represents his willingness to develop younger players as well as his faith in the bright future of the U.S. national team.

During his time away, he remained involved in the sport by playing for other leagues, mentoring younger players, and honing his skills to stay competitive at the highest level.

Returning to the national team posed numerous challenges for Holt. He faced obstacles such as injuries, intense competition for roster spots, and the evolving dynamics of the sport. Yet, he overcame these hurdles through perseverance, emerging stronger and more determined than ever. As he stepped onto the court once again, it became evident that he was not just a contender but a vital asset to the team. His unmatched skills, strategic gameplay, and unwavering mentality were visible to coaches and fans alike. Despite the rigorous competition and demanding training routines, Holt's return to the national team showcased his commitment to pushing the boundaries of his abilities as a 36-year-old athlete.

Although the duration of his prolonged career is unknown, we can expect to see Holt's presence impact the team daily. His experience, leadership, and exceptional talent will undoubtedly contribute to the continued success and growth of the U.S. Men's National Team. Additionally, his willingness to mentor younger players and his passion for the sport will leave a lasting legacy in the volleyball community.
