FAMU Football Team Makes Tracy Martin Honorary Captain

FAMU honors Trayvon Martin's father

The Florida A&M Rattlers have named Trayvon Martin's father an honorary captain after a moving speech he gave the team on Sunday, coach Earl Holmes told the Orlando Sentinel.

Tracy Martin will perform the pregame coin toss for FAMU's season opener against Mississippi Valley State on Sept. 1, as part of the honors, the Orlando newspaper reported.

"[We] talked and I told him I'd love him to talk to the team," Holmes said. "He came out and he was very, very encouraging. … "[He] got a standing ovation from our guys. He talked about just persevering and told the guys to keep on pushing through the hard times. The message he shared with the kids was very positive and they were very responsive."
