Through his diverse educational experiences, Coach Martinson has developed a deep love for learning and educating.

Coach Martinson was born in Lowell, Massachusetts -- about 15 miles north of Boston. He began playing soccer at the age of 5 and soon discovered that while on the pitch, he belonged between the pipes. He would go on to play for several premiere teams in and around the city of Boston before he moved to Maine at the age of 13.

However, shortly after he transferred, the Men's soccer program was suddenly cut due to funding restraints.

In 2009, Coach Martinson joined the Bangor High School men's soccer staff as an assistant varsity coach. In 2010, he helped coach Bangor to a Class A state championship. He coached for two more years at Bangor before his move to Utah.
