COACH’S QUOTE --“Eric Martin is a rare talent. At 6’2 and 200 lbs. he is a dual threat to run and pass and creates enormous problems for opposing teams. Eric’s grasp of the offense and poise will certainly carry our team. Most importantly, Eric is a winner who positively affects all those around him.” – Rob Stoll, Football Coach.
