As all eyes are on the Paris Wildcats who take on Waco La Vega this evening, Paris High Alumni and videograhper Wesley Martin created a video titled, ‘Blast From The Past’ for the players and as a tribute to the 1988 Silver Crush Team.
“Mrs Dixon from Paris ISD called me and asked if I could help and I was not going to say no,” said Martin.
In the video, that has now been viewed over 10,000 times, Martin offered word of encouragement to the Wildcats.
“To our Paris Wildcats! The Silver Crush is in you! The entire city believes in every last one of y’all! Let’s go win!!!! Here’s something I made called “Blast From The Past” for our boys and tribute to the 1988 Silver Crush Team #WEBELIEVE”
An avid football fan himself, Martin graduated from Paris High in 2009 before attending Ouachita Baptist University on football scholarship.
“After a couple years and a injury I transferred to the HBCU Langston University and that’s where i fell in love with the camera,” said Martin. “i started with artists and being on tour, so I learned to edit quick and on the go.”
Paris High School recently offered Martin a postition teaching video and audio and he jumped at the opportunity.
“I’m truly excited for the opportunity. I want to show the kids how fun and profitable it is to learn the skills.”
Martin said his goal is to continue his videography business, 3’s Up Productions and work with youth and media whenever he can.
