After delivering an inspirational message to FAMU’s football team, Tracy Martin has been named the team’s honorary captain.“[He] got a standing ovation from our guys. He talked about just persevering and told the guys to keep on pushing through the hard times,” said coach Earl Holmes. He is scheduled to do the coin toss at the Rattlers pre-season opener on Sept. 1.  (Photo: Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)
