Athlete of the Week: Reilly Martin

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Brebeuf senior forward Reilly Martin is as good as it gets when it comes to high school soccer.

“I couldn’t ask for anybody better unless there was a clone of her,” joked Brebeuf head girls soccer coach Angela Berry White. “When she steps on the field, teams take notice. It’s just not one of two players on her, usually it’s about three.”

Martin is one of the biggest reasons that the Braves had one of their best finishes in school history. They ended the year 22-1, losing to Carmel in regionals. During that time, Martin had 29 goals and 27 assists.

“I just love the team atmosphere and just being part of a team and just the competitiveness and everything about it,” said Martin.

Statistics aside, her leadership qualities may have helped Brebeuf just as much.

“I love as a forward you can kind of pull in other players out wide and bring in the midfield, and I don’t know I’ve always loved to be a finisher and love to score,” said Martin.

“She’s able to score, she’s able to assist and she’s able to help out other players get better. It’s nice to have that quality,” said Berry White.

Next up for Martin, she heads to the University of Michigan to play under head coach Greg Ryan, a former US National team coach.

“She hasn’t reached her top level yet,” said Berry White. “The sky is the limit for her.”
