He turned in his strongest performances as Senior, claiming the 1992 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track and Field Championships – Men's 1,500 meter run title in 3:38.39. Demonstrating his range as a middle-distance runner, Holman was also 4th in the 1992 Indoor NCAA 5000 meter championship running 13:47.63.
