Football Season at SDSMF

High School Football season creates high demand for SDSMF services. Thanks to your donations and in-kind support from our medical partners, SDSMF was able to provide care valued at $465,600 through our free injury clinics, high school athletic trainers, and surgery patients. This brings SDSMF's financial impact close to $3 million since its inception in 2002.

Athlete Spotlight: Maverick Martin

Maverick, a scholar-athlete and team captain for the San Marcos Varsity Football Team, suffered a traumatic ankle injury in July, jeopardizing his senior season and several college offers. Thanks to your donations, SDSMF was able to provide Maverick with the medical attention he needed. Exactly 3 months post surgery, Maverick played 68 downs of football in front of both USD and SDSU scouts.


On Maverick's first night back on the field he scored the only touchdown of the game during the last play of his high school football career.


Maverick currently has offers to play football at USD, Valparaiso University, Southwest Minnesota State, Lake Erie University, and Southern Nazarene University.


Congrats to Maverick and his family!
