2011 G Cole Martinez of San Antonio Central Catholic is flanked by his parents, Mr & Mrs. Reuben Martinez as he signs his scholarship papers to the United States Air Force Prep School
The folks over at Central Catholic had a classy news conference set up for Buttons star Cole Martinez as he confirmed his college commitment to Air Force. My old friend, & Central Catholic Head Coach Romy Vela summed it up best when he said that “Cole was not only a great basketball player, but was on his way to serve his country and to be an officer & a gentleman”.
Martinez (shown below in the Black & orange of the Texas D1 Ambassadors) is one of the most prolific scorers & classiest young men to ever wear the uniform. He’s a pure shooter who is also adding breadth to his repertoire with improved ball handling ability to create his own shot off the bounce. His resume’ includes leading the City of San Antonio in scoring & being named the Express News Player of the Year. He’ll have a great career with the Falcons.
Congratulations to Cole & His Family as he continues to fly high!’Coach Max Ivany
