Cedar City • Southern Utah running back Raysean Martin has earned national All-Star honors by College Sporting News for his play at Sacramento State. He is one of five players honored by CSN this week.
Martin, a freshman running back from Tennyson High School in Hayward, Calif., helped lead the Thunderbirds to the 24-21 overtime win. He carried 26 times for 131 yards and scored all three SUU touchdowns. He also completed a 33-yard pass for a first down during the team's game-tying drive at the end of regulation.
Martin's three touchdowns are the most by an SUU running back since Major Gray had four in a game against UC Davis in 2009.
