Martez Ivey, a former standout football player from Apopka High and the University of Florida, has experienced a remarkable journey in his football career. Despite facing challenges and setbacks along the way, Ivey's determination and perseverance have led him to become a professional football player in the Canadian Football League (CFL). This article will delve into the ups and downs of Ivey's career, from his high school days to his current role as an offensive tackle for the Edmonton Elks.

  1. High School Stardom: Martez Ivey emerged as a highly regarded high school football player, earning accolades and recognition as the top offensive tackle prospect in his class. However, his journey was not without hurdles. He struggled with attendance and tardiness, but with the support of his coaches, Ivey turned his life around, becoming a role model for others.

  2. College Career at Florida: Ivey's talents on the field caught the attention of college recruiters, and he ultimately chose to play for the University of Florida Gators. Despite suffering an injury during his college career, Ivey's talent and determination shone through. He started 34 games on the offensive line, showcasing his skills and leadership abilities.

  3. Undrafted in the NFL: After an impressive college career, Ivey set his sights on the NFL. However, he faced disappointment when he went undrafted in the 2019 NFL Draft. Despite being labeled as "sloppy and undeveloped" by NFL scouts, Ivey remained determined to prove himself at the professional level.

  4. XFL and New England Patriots: Ivey's journey took an interesting turn when he was drafted by the Tampa Bay Vipers in the 2nd round of the 2020 XFL Draft. Unfortunately, his contract was terminated when the league suspended operations. Undeterred, Ivey signed with the New England Patriots but was cut before the regular season began.

  5. CFL Success: Despite the setbacks, Ivey's passion for the game led him to the Canadian Football League. He joined the Toronto Argonauts and later found a home with the Edmonton Elks. Currently playing as an offensive tackle, Ivey has been making significant contributions to his team's success.

  6. The Road to Redemption: Ivey's journey is a testament to his resilience and determination. Overcoming injuries, doubts, and setbacks, he has proven himself to be an NFL-ready player. His pro potential is yet to be fully realized, but his success in the CFL is a testament to his skills and character.

Martez Ivey's football journey is a story of determination, perseverance, and resilience. From his high school days to his current role as an offensive tackle for the Edmonton Elks in the CFL, Ivey has faced challenges head-on and emerged stronger. While he may not have achieved his initial goal of playing in the NFL, his success in the CFL highlights his talents and potential as a professional football player. As Ivey continues to make strides in his career, it will be exciting to see where his journey takes him next.
