There is no easy way to slice this humble pie, Ryan Martin’s senior season at Woodstock has been a bit of a disappointment. Just a week before the season started, the 2019 running back suffered a broken collarbone that left him sideline until last week’s game.
The rust was knocked off quickly, and the four year starter romped for 125 yards on the ground while collecting 15 yards receiving, as well. On one touchdown run Martin shot up the middle before he was met by a defensive safety. The senior tho, was not to be denied, and lowered his shoulder running straight through the tackle, then rumbled the final twenty yards for a score.
The play earned him the #3 spot in our Week 8 voting getting him about 20% of the collective vote. After several productive seasons, Martin has built a reputation for being a consistent running back with excellent hands in the backfield.
He’s improved a good bit with his receiving over the years, and looks to be true skill that he can bring at the college level. Still, Martin wants to continue to improve his route running.
With the transition to more wide open football across the country, finding a running back like the hands of Martin is the difference between converting a key first down, and the ball bouncing up in the air for an interception.
