He's a game changer, but he also benefited from carrying the burden with Cartwright. I honestly wish there was another running back who could step up to complement Martin in that same way. I haven't seen it so far.

Martin Runs For 299 In Aggies Comeback Win Over CSU NCATAGGIES.COMSAT, SEP 14
CHARLESTON, S.C. – There is truly a tradition of greatness at the running back position at a university when 299 yards rushing is the third-best single-game performance in the football program’s history.
Junior running back Jah-Maine Martin added to the lore that is Running Back U., at N.C. A&T by rushing for 299 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Aggies to a come-from-behind 27-21 win over Charleston Southern Saturday night at Buccaneer Field.
Former Aggie running back Maurice Hicks holds the best two performances with a then NCAA record 437 yards rushing at Morgan State in 2001 and 353 yards rushing against S.C. State in 2000.
Martin’s two touchdowns went for 84 and 76 yards respectively. His 84-yard run is the fifth-best in school history tied with Tarik Cohen (2016) and Michael Basnight (1996).
“Our running backs coach (Shawn Gibbs) always tells us that running backs have to be the spark plugs of the offense,” said Martin. “I put that in my head and said, ‘Hey it’s time to go for it.’”
