Q&A With Trevor Martin

PBR OK: What were your expectations about the recruiting process. Was it as expected?

Martin: The recruiting process was kinda a sudden surprise I wasn't expecting it to happen so suddenly. I knew I wasn't bad at playing the game, but I can't say that it was expected. It was difficult at first, but once i got to Stillwater, it made it easy because I knew that is where I wanted to be.

PBR OK: You attended the PBR Future Games Trials a few days before your commitment. How do you feel attending that event affected your recruitment?

Martin: I feel like it affected my recruitment a lot. It gave me a chance to play in front of the coaches at Oklahoma State and gave me the chance to show them what I have to offer.

PBR OK: What do you like most about the college you committed to, and what were the key factors in making your decision?

Martin: The thing I like most about Oklahoma State is the coaching staff and the people I'll be surrounding myself with. I'm from a small town, so it was really easy to settle in with the coaches there. One of the key factors for me is the pitching coach, Rob Walton. I liked how he handled things, and I think that he can help me take my game to the next level. Also, the area just felt like it wasn't a big city, but it wasn't a small town either, so it was just enough.

PBR OK:  Did location or distance from home play a factor in your decision?

Martin: No, distance did not play a factor. My family wanted whatever was best for me and where I felt the best.

PBR OK: What other schools were on your short list before you made your final decision?

Martin: I had narrowed it down too just Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.

PBR OK: Who is the best player you have faced in Oklahoma, and why?

Martin: I have faced many great players in Oklahoma, but if I had to pick the best one i have faced, it would probably be Conner Uselton. That guy can do it all.

PBR OK:  What advice would you give to young baseball players striving to get where you are? Martin: Tell them that it's not easy. Make sure to get everything you can out of it when your holding the ball,  don't let it go to waste. When you dad or coach has you out there working  and you're tired and want to go home, just know that they are there for you and want to get everything they see in you to show. Just keep going, and don't let anything get in the way of your success.

PBR OK:  What is the most memorable moment in your baseball career to this point?

Martin: The most memorable moment in my baseball career to this point is probably the first day I ever stepped on the mound at 10 years old. After I threw to my first batter, I knew I had a knack for it.  

PBR OK:  Preview your high school season for us. How do you feel your team will be?

Martin: What are your expectations and goals? We are going to  surprise some teams, and beat some teams we are not supposed to. We are all really young and can do nothing but get better as the season goes on. Our goals, as everyone's are, are to make it to the state tournament and then win it. Anything can happen in playoffs.

PBR OK: Where do you play in the summer? And what has been your most memorable experience with them?

Martin: I play with Midwest Elite-Seng . I had quite a few memorable experiences with those guys. Our run in Georgia is probably the most memorable. I can't wait to get back with those guy next summer.
