2018 (Season Outlook)
Josh Martin looks to get back in the gym this year, after an injury limited him in 2017. Martin is an all-arounder and will look to make spots in the lineup on all six events. He's expected to competed on vault for the Huskers as he appeared three times in 2017 before getting hurt. He also appeared once on pommel horse and could help the Huskers on that event as well. 

Outside of the gym, Martin is expected to continue making an impact after earning spots on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in fall and spring semesters of 2016-17. He was also a member of the 2017 Tom Osborne Citizenship Team.

2017 (Medical Redshirt)
Martin suffered a season-ending injury early in the season and was forced to take a medical redshirt in his first season at Nebraska. Prior to the injury, Martin was dynamic on vault for the Huskers in the first three meets of the season. He scored at least 14.00 each time and notched a season-high score of 14.10 twice. 

Despite not being able to impact the team in the gym, Martin was impressive in the classroom and in the community for the Huskers, earning spots on the Nebraska Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll in the fall and spring semesters of 2016-7. He also was named to the Tom Osborne Citizenship Team in 2017.
