The senior defensive end puts the sack in PSAC. Martin entered the season as the Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference’s all-time leader in both sacks and tackles for a loss. Slippery Rock’s matchup against Lock Haven on Sept. 16 saw Martin sack the Bald Eagles quarterback twice. They were sacks No. 46 and 47 of his career, breaking McKendree’s Lucky Baar’s NCAA DII football record of 46.5 sacks. 

Martin is now the division’s all-time leader.

“It was surreal,” Martin said. “At the exact moment that it happened, it was third and long and I was dog-tired. I knew I needed to make a play. I had a feeling in my head I was going to get there. I remember walking to the sidelines. They announced it, it was a humbling feeling. It’s the biggest accomplishment I’ve ever had in my life.”
