RtN: Water Valley's Martavius Rockette
In a season full of tough losses and growing pains for the young Water Valley Blue Devils, Freshman Martavius Rockette was a bright spot, showcasing his electrifying athletic ability every time he touched the ball in all three facets of the game.
Offensively, Rockette had almost 500 yards receiving on 35 catches with 5 total offensive touchdowns. Defensively, he led the defense with three interceptions on the season. Despite his success on offense and defense some of Rockette's most incredible plays came on punt returns, he had a punt return touchdown and three returns that were over 60 yards long.
The 5'10 160 pound athlete will be a huge playmaker offensively and defensively for Head Coach Brad Embry over the next 3 years at Water Valley.
