Texas A&M offensive tackle Koda Martin was discharged from the hospital Thursday evening after suffering heat stroke, according to his father Kirk.
Kirk, the quarterbacks coach at Syracuse, tweeted that Koda’s organs had begun to shut down and he suffered kidney failure from his internal temperature being so high on Monday. Koda Martin had been missing from spring practice at A&M and, according to the Houston Chronicle, the school had not commented on the reason for his absence.

“Thanks for the prayers! Koda is coming home! Monday he had a heat stroke at practice. The trainers took his temp. It was 106. They immediately got him into an ice tub to reduce his temp & called the ambulance. They likely saved his life. His organs had begun to shut down. His vitals weren’t good. Once in the ambulance he received a cold IV which helped reduce his temp. He was severely dehydrated. He spent a few days in ICU in kidney failure. In 3 days it came back to normal as did all his other numbers. He was on a catheter for 2 days. Once his kidney function started to come back that was removed & they continued to monitor him. Praise God he will make a full recovery! God is good!”
That is a frightening note.
Martin was Texas A&M’s primary starting left tackle in 2017 with 10 starts in 12 games. He’s set to be a senior in 2018 and won the team’s weight room MVP award at the end of the 2017 season.
