In 2014, Eddie Martinez, member of the Florence High School Athletic Hall of Fame and the Voice of the Gophers for over 15 years, passed away after his battle with cancer. In January, his #14 Basketball Jersey was retired and will hang in the FHS Gym along with the memories of past year's state championships. Martinez was not only an outstanding athlete and a lifelong Gopher, but also provided play-by-play announcements for Florence High School athletics. His jersey is the first to be retired in the 100 year history of Florence High School.
