01 Feb Mario Martinez Jr.
Class of 2022
Quarterback – Dual Threat
Mario Martinez Jr. of Upland, California has all the tools to be a D1 prospect at the next level. The 8th grader who played with the Upland Hurricanes this past fall, threw 21 touchdown passes, and added 3 more with his legs. Martinez shows great poise while in the pocket, and has the athleticism to extend the play. Martinez uses great technique in his play faking, he gets back in a hurry, and really sells the play fake. Martinez has above average arm strength, as he can make all the throws. He can take snaps under center, and from the gun. Martinez is very fluent, and can adjust on the fly. His ability to go through his progressions, diagnose the defense, and get the ball out and on time is very impressive. All that to go with his 6’1 frame, Martinez has the potential of being one of the top quarterbacks in the class of 22′. I believe Martinez is capable of stepping onto a varsity team, and starting next season.
