Ralph Martino Jr., a senior from Baltimore, MD, signed a scholarship with Overtime Elite. Martino joins the Cold Hearts and makes his debut on Friday, December 2nd at 7pm ET at OTE Arena, airing live on Amazon Prime Video. The 6’6” combo guard brings instinctive playmaking and dynamic finishes at the rim to a highlight-reel ready Cold Hearts squad. Over the summer, Martino played with Team United and most recently played at Shabach Christian Academy. Last season, he was honored by being named 6A First Team All-District and First Team All-Region.
“Ralph’s ability to get to the rim for crazy, jaw-dropping dunks only scratches the surface of his natural ability,” says Tim Fuller, VP of Recruiting and Player Personnel. “His smooth and graceful movements with the ball make his scoring look effortless, and on the other side of the ball, he’s able to defend across all positions.”
Martino will be in uniform for the Cold Hearts for their big early season matchup with the YNG Dreamerz. The Cold Hearts sit in third place in the standings at 2-2, behind the 4-0 City Reapers and 4-1 YNG Dreamerz.
