Gabe Martin MAC East Defensive POTW

Gabe Martin was awarded the MAC East Defensive Player of the Week for BG today.  He had a big game against UT...from the MAC release:

Bowling Green senior linebacker Gabe Martin (Grand Blanc, Mich.) recorded a game-high 12 tackles, and tied his career high with 2.5 tackles for loss, in a 27-20 loss at Toledo. Early in the fourth quarter, Martin blocked a Toledo field goal, which allowed the Falcons' offense to tie the game on the very next possession. Martin was also integral in forcing a fumble, as he drove a lineman back into the quarterback, before one of his teammates came and knocked the ball loose for the Falcons to recover.

Martin has been a great player for the Falcons.  He's a senior and he has been an absolute warrior.  Coach even got a little choked up when he talked about Martin accepting--without hestitation--a position change in the middle of his senior year.  He was injured for the MAC title game last year and I am thrilled we are getting him back and let's win him one on the field.
