Former Rice center Trey Martin will be looking to make an impression on professional scouts this weekend when he plays in the third annual SPIRAL Tropical Bowl in Daytona Beach, Florida.

The game will be played on Sunday, Jan. 14 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Game coverage will be provided by Flofootball.com to its subscribers.  Since 2016 over 110 Players from this game have gone on to the NFL, the CFL and Pro Arena leagues.

Martin was a three-year starter for the Owls, the last two at center and served as a co-captain as a senior. Despite playing with three different right guards this season, he did not allow a QB presser on 312 snaps as a senior and was the only lineman in the country to log 75 or more pass blocking snaps and not allow a pressure.

He was a member of the 2017 Rimington Award Watch List and was also a preseason All-Conference USA pick by league coaches. He averaged a 91% grade in his 12 starts in 2017 and topped 90% in 31 of his last 32 games.

The SPIRAL Tropical Bowl USA is presented by East Preps and NFL DRAFT BLITZ is the featured sponsor for the game. Sponsors also include MVP Wealth Management Group, True to Yourself Brand, and the broadcast partner FloFootball by FloSports.
