Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’ve probably seen articles about the Stingette sensation at Alabama State University who has been seen on the big screen and in music videos.
Asia Martin, the second-year captain of the Alabama State Stingettes, simply slays when she’s on the field, and was also just named the “Best HBCU Captain 2015” by HBCU Dance, a media outlet that offers danceline training, scholarships, team sponsorships, audition assistance and more.
That makes Martin’s second year in a row to win the award.
In an interview with HBCU Buzz’s President Brittany Ireland, the Stingette sensation admitted that though she slays on the field, she’s not as open off the field. “Asia, affectionately named “Slaysia” from supporters, is a 20-year-old senior, Fine Arts major studying at Alabama State University,” writes Ireland. “She slays.”
“I’m not as open as much as it may seem when I’m on the field,” said Martin later in the interview when asked to tell a secret.
“Asia, affectionately named “Slaysia” from supporters, is a 20-year-old senior, Fine Arts major studying at Alabama State University. She slays.”
Martin also said that “being humble is essential” in the interview.
“Thank you to everyone who took the time out to vote me as Best HBCU Captain for the second year in a row,” Martin said on her Instagram account, after hearing the news of the poll results by HBCU Dance. “You all continue to aid in inspiring me to keep reaching for my goals and I’m blessed to be able to do the same in return.”
“Cheers to another SHOWSTOPPING season,” Martin added.
In addition, Bridgette Williams, Stingette Coordinator, was also named “Best HBCU Coach 2015” by HBCU Dance.
