077: Clay Martin, NFL referee—the rules make the game

by | Mar 3, 2021

Clay Martin counts himself fortunate to be both a successful high school basketball coach and a member of the elite NFL officating corps as a referee. His career as an Oklahoma All-state student athlete and successful coach have garnered him entree into the Tulsa Public Schools Hall of Fame and the Oklahoma Baptist University Hall of Fame, where he starred as a four-year basketball player.

I caught up with Clay after the 2020-21 NFL season for this conversation on the Spirit of Leading podcast.
