Former Vicksburg High School football player Marvin Martin Jr. officially signed with Kansas State University Wednesday.

Martin previously committed to Boston College a couple of months ago but decided that Kansas State University was the place he wanted to continue his football career.

“I picked Kansas State because the coaches showed me love, and I also love the fan base,” Martin said.

Martin played for VHS as a sophomore and junior where he was a hard hitting safety under head coach Tim Hughes. He transferred to Trinity Christian Academy for his 2020 senior season where he recently helped his team win the Texas Christian Athletic League Championship.

Martin chose KSU over bigger schools that offered him scholarships such as Mississippi State University, Texas Christian University and the University of Oklahoma.

Martin credited most of his success to his family and to God.

“I credit all my success to my mom, dad, brother and God for always sticking with me,” Martin said.

Martin has returned home to Vicksburg and will graduate in May before heading off to KSU.
