October 11, 2014 - Saul Martinez kicks game winner over Angelo State
Playing in Angelo State's first Homecoming in its new facility, facing a 13-point halftime deficit and struggling through a mountain of miscues in the first half, A&M-Commerce stepped up in the face of adversity and ran right through it pulling out a thrilling 41-40 win over the Rams Saturday night in LeGrand Stadium.... The Lions brought out Saul Martinez, who was one of just four kickers in the NCAA without a missed field goal prior to start of the game, but had uncharacteristically missed a 39 yarder to end the first half.  Martinez confidentially drilled the kick with 2:04 remaining lifting the Lions to their first lead, 41-40, since the 7-0 advantage A&M-Commerce had after the opening touchdown. 'You just have to have a short memory kicking,' Martinez commented after the game. 'If you miss one it is onto the next kick.  Coach told me right after the half, that he was going to come back to me and give me another shot.  I was just thankful for the opportunity the offense gave me getting down the field.  The guys did great up front on the kick and gave me time to hit it'."- Lions
