He finished his junior season with 88 tackles and six sacks while splitting time between defensive end and linebacker.
"I'll play wherever," Martin said. "I'll probably end up playing on the line for sure in college. The thing about me is I hate losing. I'm a diehard. You won't see me giving up. Anything can happen when you're behind. I'm gonna give it all I have a I know a lot of guys in high school don't do that."
Twyon Martin, who carries a 3.2 GPA and plans on attending the Scout.com All-American Combine at FAU on May 13, points to his performance against St. Thomas Aquinas as a positive from his junior season.
"That was one of my best games," he said. "(Sam Young) won some and I won some. He's a great player but I did really well against him. I enjoy the competition that players like that provide."
Martin, who also plays basketball and competes in track, will likely be a Division 1 player this coming year. He's already getting lots of interest from college coaches.
"Rutgers came to the school," he said. "Minnesota said they're gonna come by. I get hand written stuff from Georgia Tech and a bunch of other things from other schools. My top choices would probably be Miami, Florida, Notre Dame, Auburn, South Carolina, and Louisville."
Like many other South Florida kids, the hometown Hurricanes stand out above the rest right now.
"Miami's the place I wanna go," he said. "I wanna be an architect and they offer my major. Plus, it's right around the corner and they've always been my favorite college team."
