Tony Terrell Hollings (born December 1, 1981 in Macon, Georgia) is a former American football running back. He was originally selected in the second round of the 2003 NFL Supplemental Draft out of Georgia Tech by the Houston Texans.

Because of knee surgery when he was at Georgia Tech, Hollings went nearly a year between games, but he regained durability throughout his rookie season and showed promise. On September 21 against the Kansas City Chiefs, in his first non-special teams action, he tore off 41 yards on 7 carries. He wound up starting a game late in the '03 season. Ex-coach Dom Capers said Hollings gave the team “some speed and burst”. Hollings was given the nickname "Superman" during his college career because of the way he "flew" over defensive opponents.

In 2008 he played for the Dresden Monarchs in the German Football League as starting Halfback. One year later he was traded to the Berlin Adler but suffered a season-ending injury.
