WATCH: Jimbo Fisher discusses OL Koda Martin's condition after scary heat stroke incident
This week, Texas A&M OL Koda Martin dealt with a scary situation as he was taken to intensive care after becoming dangerously dehydrated during a spring practice.
Martin’s father credits quick actions from the Texas A&M training staff for helping to ensure it wasn’t even worse, but Martin still had to be taken to the hospital.
On Saturday, Texas A&M coach Jimbo Fisher discussed Martin’s situation, saying Martin was fully hydrated entering practice, even saying Martin was having his best practice of the spring before going down:

“He actually had about his best practice of the year and it’s a shame that it happened,” he said. “That’s dangerous, but our medical staff did a great job.
“He’s a heavy sweater and that’s what happened, I guess, I don’t know.”
Fisher added that he expects Martin to return this summer. However, it’s safe to say his hydration will be more closely monitored in the future, as not everyone retains water the same way.
