Touchdown Club Names Jay Martin of Clinton High as Player of the Week

October 31, 2022

The Laurens County Touchdown Club is proud to announce that for games played on October 28th, the Player of the week is senior offensive lineman and captain Jay Martin of Clinton High School.

Martin is offensive lineman for Clinton High School as the Red Devils defeated the Emerald Vikings by a score of 37 – 6 last Friday night on Senior Night at CHS.  Clinton High will host Travelers Rest this Friday night at Wilder Stadium to begin the first round of the SCHSL AAA Playoffs.

Martin, a Clinton High School senior captain, has 53 knockdown blocks on the year and has graded out at nearly 90% and he did this past Friday Night.  He dominates the offensive line of scrimmage for the Red Devils each and every week leading a host of running backs to rush for over 3,000 yards for the Devils thus far.

Clinton High School Head Coach Corey Fountain stated, “Jay has been a staple on the varsity since his Freshman year.  He is a hard nosed kid that plays the kind of physical ball Clinton High is known for.  He also gives us quality reps on the defensive line.”

The Laurens County Touchdown Club will honor Martin on November 3rd at the bi-monthly Touchdown Club meeting.  The meeting will be at noon at The Ridge in Laurens.  Player of the Week awards this year is presented by Farm Bureau Insurance of Laurens County.

The November 3rd meeting will feature former Head Football Coach Mike Ayers of Wofford College.  Coach Ayers was recently inducted into the South Carolina Athletic Hall of Fame.

The Laurens County Touchdown Club meets every other Thursday throughout the football season at The Ridge located in Laurens at 301 Exchange Road and the public is invited.  Tickets can be purchased at the door for $15. All meetings are at Noon.
