07/20/21 Update: Martin is one of the best punters in the country, for any class year. He routinely crushes 4.5+ second punts 45+ yards, and can even get up into the 4.8-4.9 second hang time range and rope them 50-55 yards (net). I have no doubt by this sophomore football season he’ll be hitting 5.0+ second punts, which is insane for any grade in HS, but especially impressive as he’s only a sophomore. Martin won the July 17, 2021 Seattle, WA punting competition and finished 2nd overall on kickoffs as well. Check out the YouTube video of all his consecutive punts from the Seattle camp, on his profile – very impressive.

He puts together an excellent ball flight that spirals easily, travels far, and lands flat with a wobbly landing which makes it difficult for the returner to catch, plus it helps eek out a little more hang time. As a Class of 2024 Punter in the state of Idaho and only entering his sophomore year, Martin shows a ton of promise and should be in line for early offers. He’s definitely the best Class of 2024 Punter we’ve seen in 2 camp seasons thus far.

2020 National Showcase Update (12/6/20)
Martin finished #2 Overall on Day 2 Punt Eliminations hitting several monster punts, noticeably a best ball of 54 / 4.56. He beat every 9th/10th grader and all seniors topping nearly 90 students to finish 1st in his class and 2nd overall. Martin showed that he’s one of the best underclassmen punters out there. Read about Martin’s wow punting performance at this year’s National Showcase in our Event Recap.

Martin has a booming punting leg! He had an excellent showing at his first KW camp appearance in July 2020 in Seattle. Since then he’s shown even further improved punting ability as well as kicking. He’s been invited and is registered for the National Showcase on Dec 5-6 in Austin and I look forward to seeing what he can do, and how he hangs against other freshmen / sophomore specialists. I really think Martin could emerge as one of the best underclassmen punters in the country – we will see how he does in Texas!
