Cameron Martin has been an Armijo Indian since he was a freshman, playing both basketball and baseball for the school every year. “I’ll miss playing in front of a packed gym for the Armijo vs. Rod basketball games,” he said. But leaving Armijo won’t be the end of his athletic goals.

“I plan on going to North Valley Community College if I don’t get a scholarship for baseball,” Martin said. “I’m going to try to get into Stanford.” He plans to major in kinesiology which will go hand-in-hand with his sports experience. He wants to use that knowledge to help him either become a professional baseball player or an athletic trainer. If either of those careers falls through, he is also considering becoming a firefighter.

As he completes his last year in high school, he was able to share some advice with advice with students just starting: “I would tell them to not be shy and to try a bunch of different things. Go to all the Armijo events, like football games, because they’re really fun,” he said. If he could change anything about the school, he said that he would probably change the amount of financial support there is for baseball. “We have to do fundraising every year, just so we have baseballs,” said Martin.

“My favorite memory so far [of Armijo] would be beating Rodriguez in the last baseball game of the season last year, under the lights,” he said.

When he’s not at school, Martin enjoys hanging out with his friends, going for a drive or listening to music. He’ll be able to do most of these things no matter where he goes to college, but there is one thing that will be different for him. “I’ll definitely miss seeing my girlfriend every day,” he said.

Martin has an older sister (Bailey, 19) and a younger brother (Dylan, 13).
