“We came up with something called ‘The no fly zone,’” Martin said. “That is something our hard-hitting safeties took to heart and that motto is still there today I believe, and it’s my own personal motto.”
Martin said he has a camp named after the “The No Fly Zone” motto Victor Johnson, who was a safety at OSU and was later was kicked off the team, started at OSU approximately four years ago.
Martin said without the motto, Gundy, and DeForest, he wouldn’t be where he is today. He said the staff he was associated with was too respectful to do what the rumored allegations said happened during his time at OSU.
Martin said if a person wants to know why the safeties at OSU made big plays during those seasons, it was because of one saying that was going around the locker room before every game and not because of a bounty system.
“If it flies it dies,” Martin said. “We played hard because we were part of the, ‘The No Fly Zone,’ and coach DeForest had nothing to do with that.”
