Texas A&I University - 1970

Martinez was an all-state trackman at Fal. He was the co-state champion with teammate Robert Gonzalez in the 1964 mile run. Martinez and Gonzalez formed one of the best 1-2 distance running punches in the state. In his junior and senior year, Martinez was runner-up to Gonzalez in the state mile run and on the state championship cross-country team. Martinez' best time in the mile was 4:11.4. After graduating from Fal in 1966, Martinez went on to A&I, where he ran four seasons. He still owns A&I distance running marks in the two mile, three mile and six mile. Martinez twice won the Lone Star Conference two mile.
