Brandon Martin was a senior at Chaparral High School, where he played wide receiver on the football team.
“It’s just a tragic situation,” Chaparral football coach Charlie Ragle told the Arizona Republic. “I hope that people understand he was a good kid. We all make mistakes. He was a kid you wanted to be around and have on your football team.”
Al Martin played for the Pirates from 1992-99 and Brandon was a fixture in the clubhouse at Three Rivers Stadium during those latter years.
