I remembe I used to read the Corpus Christi Caller Times when Martin was the quarterback of Roy Miller High school. He had great statistics. Only later when I met Martin did I find out he had vision problems especially at night. I asked how he was able to complete his passes. He said he had a general idea of where the receiver would be and he would throw it there. Incredible. Great guy.
