Michael Martens will graduate in 2008 with the rest of his classmates at St. Mary's College, however…
Focus '08: Canadian Speedster Michael Martens
"The interest I have been receiving at this point has been from LSU, BYU, Georgia, Notre Dame, Clemson, Northwestern, North Carolina State, Syracuse, Rice and finally New Mexico," Martens stated. "Right now they have just been sending me information to fill out and get back to them as I am only a sophomore, so I have been filling out the questionnaires and sending film to schools."
Martens plays wide receiver, cornerback and safety for St. Mary's College and also is an excellent kick and punt return specialist. He played in five games as a junior and caught nine passes for 275 yards and four touchdowns, averaging a gaudy 30.5 yards per catch with a long of 60 yards. On special teams, he returned four punts for touchdown with a long of 76 yards, had a long kickoff return of 90 yards and broke 200 all-purpose yards in one of the five games he played in. His team went undefeated and were league, city, regional and provincial champions, cruising to a 12-0 record. Martens was voted first-team All-Area as a punt and kick returner and was giving the Offensive Player of the Year Award by the Coaching Association. He was third overall in his league for touchdowns, second in receiving yardage and first in all return categories. Again, this was all in five games of playing time. They do not have an equivalent to All-State honors in Canada.
As a sophomore, Martens had only his statistics from the finals where he caught 3 passes for 139 yards, had one receiving touchdown and returned a punt 50 yards for a touchdown.
In the classroom, he holds a 4.0 GPA and is awaiting his SAT results.
