How long have you been playing paintball?
Branden Martinez No. 42
What is your strongest quality as a player?
Classfied as an initial game changer because of the first kills off the break. Always the first gun up and usually the last player off the field.
Who is your biggest inspiration and why?
Jason Edwards: He’s one of the most knowledgeable back players I’ve seen play paintball his IQ level is just through the roof with his aggressive back play style. He knows where he needs to be to put his team into better position of winning the game/point.
How has your journey with TEAM USA been so far?
It’s been great I feel the U19 has a great group of well skilled and knowledgeable players. I’m definitely looking forward to playing Nations Cup with all my teammates.
Have you traveled or played paintball outside of the country before?
I have not but in September I will be!
Seconds before the buzzer sounds, what do you think of?
I think of just getting that first kill off the break to change the point and to put our team towards an advantage of winning the game.
If you could have one superpower what would it be?
The ability to read minds so I would know what the other team is doing off the break.
What is your biggest goal in your paintball career?
My biggest goal is to just grow the sport as much as possible I wanna teach the next generation of future paintball players how to be successful and also how they can help grow the sport in other ways as well.
2019 Combine Notes:
At just 19, Branden is one of the oldest players on the squad and the PROfessors feel that his experience in the 3 spot, combined with his natural ability to fill, will be a valuable asset to this young team at Nations Cup.
