The question everyone is asking, “When is Preston Martin going to get to play football again?” Well I have the million dollar answer for the town of Ripley. First you should know some things about this star football player. Martin is excited for playing football his senior year. He’s been playing football since he was 6 years old.
Through all his years of playing football, he has played running back, quarter back, safety and line-backer. “I love the new coaches, they know a lot of football” Martin says. Martin is well known for his domination on the football field, but also well known on the wrestling mat.
Even though Martin tore his ACL, MCL, meniscus, and PCL wrestling, he has been rehabbing non-stop to get back on the football field. Luckily, Martin will be cleared to dominate the field once again in 3 games this season.
He didn’t get to do summer practices because he was cleared yet to play, but he made sure to come to every practice to support his teammates.
Martin can’t wait to get back on the football field to help lead the Ripley Vikings to victory!
