This Rattler’s ready…
If anyone is primed for Rattler football it’s Esteban Martinez III. The 13-year-old Tucumcari Middle School student attended the Brian Urlacher football camp in Albuqueruqe this summer for his 13th birthday.
Martinez said he learned various tips from the Cowboys No. 54, including fast footwork and keeping all eyes on the quarterback.
The five-day camp, Martinez said, “was fun.”
Since the camp, Martinez said he keeps in shape by lifting weights six days a week. He can bench press between 85 and 90 pounds.
Martinez is the son of Esteban and Victoria Martinez of Tucumcari.
