COLUMBUS, Ohio — Former Muskegon Big Red Cameron Martinez had a big game on Saturday in his first defensive action as an Ohio State Buckeye.
The Redshirt-Freshman played some at both safety and cornerback in the game against Tulsa as he batted a pass in the second quarter that led to an interception by Ronnie Hickman.
In the fourth quarter with two minutes remaining, Martinez would intercept a Tulsa pass and go 61 yards for the touchdown.
Martinez won Mr. Football at Muskegon in his senior year back in 2019 and recorded just under 7,000 career rushing yards for the Big Reds.
"It felt good, I had all the confidence in the world that during that drive we would get a pick, I just didn't know who would get it," Martinez said after the game, "luckily it was me, I just knew once I caught it that my teammates would have my back and make all of the blocks and I'd be able to take it to the house."
