ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Jordan Martinez has burst onto the scene for the Matadors. In his freshman season at Sandia High School, he's become a go-to player at third base.

"When he gets the ball and he is at bat, he just looks like the game is slowing down for him," said Sandia's head baseball coach, Chris Eaton. "He's very calm, very cool under pressure."

Last week Martinez put up some monster numbers: batting .571 and helping Sandia with three big wins. 

"I just go off of everyone," said Martinez. "Someone's always watching, so just play your butt off, don't be lazy, just listen to your coaches."

Martinez is one of several underclassmen on the team that's undefeated in district, 6-0.
