In my mind, Martin has to rank one of the toughest defensive ends prospects in the Mountain State. On film and in person, Sean Martin already looks like he is ready for the next level. In person, he does not only look like a big-time defensive end but also plays defense with the same intensity and bravado. There is little weakness in his game. Martin is an exceptional hard worker, shows the ability to turn up his game when needed, and improves every time he steps on the field.
Martin is garnishing attention from recruiters and plays for Bluefield High school in West Virginia. Sean is a very physical defensive end that is making his presence be known. Martin stands 6’6 220 lbs. from Bluefield, West Virginia plays the game with a chip on his shoulder and has a high motor.
Last year for the Beavers, Martin on defense tallied 56 tackles, 10 sacks, 5 tfls, and 5 unassisted tackles. I was most impressed with his motor on film, the violent hands, the agility and his natural knee bend you rarely see with someone that length. Sean is quick enough to bull rush; he shows excellent technique throughout his state championship season at Bluefield and is a bonafide leader on the field.
4.0 Media caught up with Martin to speak to him about their 14-0 championship season. “I work hard and practice my footwork regularly. I want recruiters to know I work very hard, I am a coachable kid and I will do whatever it takes to be a winner on and off the field. I’m inspired by my grandfather David Riley who played for the Philadelphia Stars and coached in the NFL. I use my speed, quickness, and agility to bend around the corner. I just want to continue working to get better.” Bluefield High Sean Martin said.
I believe he has the natural ability to be a top-notch college DL with his quick reactions and instincts when he finish his high school career at Bluefield. One thing that is evident about this kid when he gets between those white lines it is all about business, so you better be ready for number 54.
