Laramie, Wyo. -


Steve Martinez
Split End


At a school where numerous receivers are still ranked at the top of NCAA receiving lists, Steve Martinez, hailing from Los Angeles, Calif., still ranks among the top 10 Cowboy receivers of all time. He led the Pokes in receiving during the 1980 (27-513-4), '81 (37-626-4) and '82 (35-546-2) seasons while putting himself on the UW all-time receiving list. Martinez finished his career with 2,043-yards receiving on 124 catches and 14 touchdowns, which still ranks him No. 7 on the Wyoming career receiving list. His most productive season came during his sophomore year of 1981, when he pulled down 37 receptions for 629 yards and four touchdowns. During that season, Martinez helped lead the Cowboys to an 8-3 record highlighted by a 55-21 victory over Colorado State. He was a three-time letterwinner for Wyoming from 1979-82 under head coaches Bill Lewis, Pat Dye and Al Kincaid.
