Nickname: "T-Mac" and "Tra-main Event"
Redshirt Senior Wide Receiver
5-foot-10, 190-pounds, 4.4-seconds in the 40
Deerfield Beach (Fl.) High School
Tramain stepped in as a redshirt sophomore and was an impact performer for the Wolfpack, exceling on offense and special teams. Hall finished with 69 receptions for 799 yards and 7 touchdowns, while also returning 2 punts for scores. He was statistically among the league leaders in all-purpose yards and receiving.
After a huge first season playing with star quarterback Philip Rivers, Hall and the Wolfpack passing attack struggled in 2004. NC State's starting halfback, Hall finished the year with 28 catches for 324 yards and three touchdowns. NC State was simply unable to utilize Hall's talents in the open field as he struggled to touch the football during his junior year. As a sophomore, Hall touched the ball 133 times and finished the year with 1,303 all-purpose yards, eigth in the ACC. In 2004, those numbers dipped to just 64 touches and 683 all-purpose yards.

Former Wolfpack wide receiver coach John “Doc” Holliday
Hall appeared visibly frustrated at times during his junior year as the Wolfpack offense struggled to make plays. Maybe new offensive coordinator Marc Trestman and the return of an experienced Jay Davis can provide the offense with a spark and allow the playmakers like Hall to simply make plays. He's proven that he is among the league's best when he gets in the open field. Now he needs to just get the ball so he can make plays.
Hall has the potential to have an All-ACC type season in 2005.
