Ever do a story on Bobby Martin?

    I saw Bobby Martin, the ex-high schooler from Dayton who plays football despite being born without legs, play for a semi-pro football team last night.

    He won an ESPY last year and has been featured by SI and the Boston Globe -- amazing story of will power and the love of football.

    If you ever get a chance, talk to the kid. He's an absolute ball of fire and gives terrific quotes and perspective of the game for a person that is only 3-foot-one and 120 pounds.

    Actually made the tackle on the opening kickoff.

    You guys that cover the pros for a living would do ourselves well in talking to this guy. Talk about love of the game -- he has it in spades.
