Former Weld County EOC participant coaching for the Raiders


Words from her mentor at Weld County Educational Opportunity Center:

“Kelsey Martinez recently was hired to become the first female assistant coach in the Oakland Raiders franchise history. I first heard this story and didn’t recognize her until I saw this photo. I began to assist her at the EOC here in Weld County when she transferred from Bethany College to Aims Community College in 2011 and I continued to assist her until she transferred to CSU in the spring of 2014.
