THIS IS EPISODE 453 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Ingle Martin was selected in the fifth round of the 2006 NFL Draft by the Green Bay Packers, and soon found himself as a backup quarterback to Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers. In August 2007, he was released by the Packers and picked up by the Titans. He later had stints with Tennessee, Denver and Kansas City before ending his professional career in 2009.
He began his college football career at the University of Florida before transferring to Furman for his junior and senior seasons, when he set multiple team records — in addition to being a punter for the Paladins.
In 2011, Martin became the head football coach of Christ Presbyterian Academy, a private high school located in Nashville, Tenn. In 2019, his club finished as the state runner-up despite a 2-6 start.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Martin about his football journey, the difference in adversity with football as compared to adversity in life, and why keeping Christ first has helped him both as a player and now as a coach. He also shares what his experience was like playing with Favre and Rodgers.
