Martinez shoots the ball as anybody in the region.  He's right there with Austin St. Michael's Jake Kocher & Pflugerville's Deon Mitchell (Northern Iowa). He currently has an offer from Southern Arkansas (D-II) but as he continues working hard on his ball handling and strength should see D1 opportunities come his way. He's a sleeper.-Coach Max Ivany
