Greer Martini, a former linebacker and captain for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish (and Cesare’ Borgia look-a-like) had a really good week. Martini plays for the AAF franchise, the Salt Lake Stallions and opened up some eyeballs with his athletic play.

SB Nation listed Martini as one of the 5 players that stood out during week 3 of the new AAF.

Martini, an undrafted free agent out of Notre Dame, was with the Packers through training camp and the preseason last year. He landed on their practice squad until October, when he was waived.

Still just 23, Martini is trying to show NFL teams that he can be a game-changer on defense. That’s who he was on Saturday, helping propel Salt Lake to its first win of the season with a game-high seven tackles and a momentum-shifting play.

On the first play of the second half and with the score tied, Martini picked off Hotshots quarterback John Wolford. He ran it back to the 7-yard line, putting the Stallions into scoring position. They took the lead a few plays later and never trailed again.

You can watch Martini this week as the Stallions take on the undefeated Orlando Apollos on Saturday. The game will be shown on the NFL Network at 8:00 PM EST.
