I am Coach Martinez! I am blessed to be a Lincoln Lancer! I was a Lancer as a student, and my daughters attended Lincoln as well, my son Antonio is a future Lancer! I have been teaching math at Lincoln since 2011. I will be the head 8th grade football and basketball coach this year. I have been coaching for about 30 years overall! I was a Lincoln Lancer, then graduated from Poudre High School in 1986. I joined the Army out of high school and completed my enlistment in 1989 with an honorable discharge. I earned an associates degree from Front Range Community College and then my bachelors degree as a first generation student from Colorado State University in 2009. My wife Sylvia has earned her bachelors and masters degrees from CSU. Sylvia works at CSU as well. I have daughters LeiLani, Franki Sue, and sons Antonio and Ruben. I am blessed to serve the North Fort Collins community and students at Lincoln. My students and athletes are some of the most amazing in Fort Collins and I am inspired by them every year!
