It was a kidding part of the conversation but standout All-State defensive end Brock Martin of Oologah, Oklahoma is in the hectic portion of wrestling season as the two-time individual state champion is bouncing back and forth and is capable of wrestling at 220 pounds and at heavyweight (285 pounds). He wins at both as evidenced last week when he went 3-0 with three falls in a district event at Vinita. He won twice at 220 pounds, once at heavyweight and spent a total of 2:20 on the mat for the three pins.
"For sure, the food this weekend might make 220 pounds hard (to make weight)," Martin agreed. "The food was really good, but it went great. It felt like home. There was lots to do and it was great to meet all the other recruits."
Martin earned multiple All-State honors this season leading Oologah to the Class 4A state championship game for the third consecutive season. Martin's numbers are off the charts as he had 152 total tackles this season with 17 sacks. In his career with the Mustangs he has 439 tackles and 52 sacks.
He is still busy and gets right back at the wrestling this week.
"I have a couple of duals on Tuesday and Thursday of this week and then a tournament on Friday and Saturday," Martin outlined. "Then we have conference, regionals, and state and that will be the end of my high school sports career."
His college career is just on the verge of getting started and although he can't comment on recruits until they have signed Joe Bob Clements has had vague but very impressive comments on Twitter each time he has seen an Oologah game and was able to watch Martin. Clements and head coach Mike Gundy were also in the building at Vinita last Tuesday night to see Martin's wrestling prowess.
