Lamont Bertrell Hollinquest (born October 24, 1970 in Los Angeles, California) is a former American football linebacker in the National Football League for the Washington Redskins and the Green Bay Packers. He played college football at the University of Southern California.
Hollinquest attended St. Pius X High School in Downey, California. After spending a year at a junior college to get his academics up, he played college football at USC , Hollinquest started his career as a safety but then moved to linebacker after an influx of recruits and transfers as a senior.
Hollinquest was drafted by the Washington Redskins in the eighth round (212th pick overall) of the 1993 NFL Draft. In his two years with Washington, Hollinquest recorded 22 tackles and an interception. The Redskins waived him near the end of the 1994 season.
Green Bay Packers
Following a tryout, Hollinquest played for the Green Bay Packers starting in the 1996 season. He immediately made an impact on special teams, finishing the year with 15 tackles. He was part of the Packers' Super Bowl XXXI championship team. Hollinquest continued to get more playing time throughout his career in Green Bay, with his tackles increasing each year. The Packers did not re-sign Hollinquest after the 1998 season. After he was cut by the Chiefs, the Packers signed Hollinquest in August 1999 due to a lack of depth at linebacker and the retirement of Robert Brooks. After the NFL suspended Hollinquest for the first four games of the season due to substance abuse problems, the Packers cut Hollinquest on August 30, 1999.
