Meet our newest Youth Football Online All-Star selection- Brady Martin. Brady is not just a gifted youth football quarterback with a “golden arm”- he is an outstanding leader. During our interview, Brady talked about the leadership qualities necessary to be a good quarterback. He loves getting his team hyped up prior to and during games. Brady prides himself on staying positive with his team when things are not going their way. Brady is not just an effective verbal leader on the field, but he leads by example. Worth ethic is a key to his success as he is always training hard at practice and at home. Brady trains with his father, grandfather and a trainer. He has outstanding work ethic and has the desire to improve every single day.
Brady has a monster arm at the youth football level (that’s to put it mildly). What stood out is his arm strength and accuracy on his deep throws. He is able to lead the receiver, allowing him to catch the football in stride. Brady is able to make the proper reads and find the open receiver on a consistent basis. His favorite play (Twins Right X) is a roll out pass that gives him a run/pass option. Brady can beat you with his arm or his legs. He can use his feet to get out of trouble and find an open receiver.
He is a mobile QB that can hurt defenses. Brady is an exceptional athlete that is always working hard to improve, he stays very humble also. Brady does an excellent job of controlling the tempo and coordinating his no-huddle, fast offense.
During our interview Brady said, “ I try to stay humble, because there is always someone better than you. I just try to work hard and get better everyday”.
What stands out– Brady’s passion for the game. “I love the couple of minutes before the game where I get my team pumped up in the tunnel. I get goosebumps, love the nervousness and butterfly feelings.” “ I just feel blessed to be able to play this game and I will never take it for granted, it is the best sport. I play every play like it’s my last” -Brady Martin
