Van Zant's Inspiration Continues

The inspirational story of former Robert E. Lee Red Raider Martel Van Zant continues.

Kelli Masters, Martel's agent, told KLTV 7 Sports Director Maya Golden that the former Oklahoma State cornerback worked out with the Tennessee Titans last week. Martel is now on the NFL's "ready" list. The list goes to all teams, informing them of what athletes are still available for a work out throughout the season.

Masters also said that several arena league football teams have expressed interest in Martel.

Martel was born without ear drums. He overcame the odds to play for Tyler Lee and then received a scholarship to play at OSU.

Masters also told KLTV 7 the rights to Martel's life story were sold to Imagine Entertainment, owned by Ron Howard. The company is now looking for a script writer to bring Martel's story to the big screen.
