A double threat on the football field on both defense and offense, Cole “Dizzle” Martin entered his football season with high hopes for the team. As a corner-back and wide-receiver, Martin hopes that he can help lead the team and leave the Black Knight Football program in a good position so it can continue to grow. After the “Battle of the Oranges and Blacks” or the North Baltimore game, Martin’s three touchdowns, five carries, one forced fumble, two sacks, and two interceptions have helped lead the Black Knights to their 4-1 record. Martin looks forward to the rest of this season, and is “excited to show the BVC what we’re (Van Buren is) made of.”

Martin prides himself in being involved in other extracurriculars and activities in the Van Buren community, he volunteers for the Special Olympic programs, he is a member of the track team, a Social Studies tutor for 2nd grade students at Van Buren Elementary, and a Powder Puff coach.

As Martin continues his future outside of Van Buren, he intends to major in business management and play college football at the next level. Although Martin is undecided as far as what college he will be attending, but he has his eyes on a couple of schools in the Ohio and Kentucky area.

Spaghetti and garlic bread.

Do you consider yourself to be a heartthrob?

No. Uhh… maybe!

If you could live in any time period, which would it be?

In the future. Because I would like to see what is invented technology wise.

What was your favorite part of the McComb game?

When the students stormed the field. Having everyone come up to me, hug me, and tell me who well I did. It was such an amazing feeling having that much support behind me and the team. I have never been apart of something like that.
