Athlete Spotlight: Mack Hollins

Mack Hollins is an NFL Wide Receiver whose eclectic personality, both on and off the field, has captured the hearts of fans nationwide.

He recently joined the Atlanta Falcons during the 2023 off-season after coming off of a career-high year with the Las Vegas Raiders. Before his year as a Captain with the Raiders, Mack spent two seasons with the Miami Dolphins (one year as captain) and 3 years with the Philadelphia Eagles, including being a major part of the Eagles Super Bowl Championship team in 2018.

Mack was a walk-on at UNC and has always carried a passion for education and literacy. He started "Mack Book Mondays" and "Fast Fact Fridays" to help drive accessibility to education, especially in underserved populations.

One of Mack's greatest passions lies in his work with the Special Olympics. As an advocate for inclusion, Mack began his involvement with the Special Olympics back in his UNC days. He was honored with the title of "Global Ambassador" for Special Olympics in 2020 and has continued to dedicate his time off the field to advocating and serving the Mission. This passion has allowed him to lead every team he played for in community hours.

In June, he joined Stagwell's "Sports Diplomacy: How to Play the Risk and Opportunity" panel at the Cannes Lions Festival with Jennifer Halloran, CMO of Mass Mutual, and John Gerzema. Here, he was among the many athletes to join panels, be interviewed by outlets, participate in referring games, share their knowledge on their sports, and try other sports they usually don't play.
