We are proud to announce that TJ Alumnus Derrick Martin has been chosen to become the next Head Football Coach at TJ. Derrick, a 2003 graduate, was a standout three sport athlete while at TJ participating in football, basketball and track. He was a state qualifier in track and helped lead the Spartan football team to the state semi-finals his senior year losing to eventual state champion Columbine. He attended the University of Wyoming on a football scholarship and was drafted by the Baltimore Ravens. He was a two-time Super Bowl Champion with the Green Bay Packers and New York Giants. His nine year NFL career also included stops in New England and Chicago. Derrick was the consensus top choice by both the search committee and the student athlete panel. We are excited to move into the next phase of Spartan Football under his leadership.
