TEMPLE, Texas Given Texas A&M s 12th Man tradition and his parents love for the university, Tristan Xavier Alan Martinez s arrival on Sept. 12 was auspicious, according to a report from KWTX News 10.

And while it s too early to tell whether Texas A&M is in his blood, it s definitely in his name, or at least in his initials, T.X.A.M.

Tristan, the newborn son of Adam and Tammy Martinez of Zabcikville, was born just after 9 a.m. Thursday at Scott & White Hospital in Temple.

And at 9 pounds 4 ounces and 19.5 inches, he may be on his way to fulfilling his father s hope that he will play for the Aggies one day. Adam Martinez said he fell in love with the university when he first enrolled.

The couple s friends were at first surprised by the choice of a name, but he says they now think it s pretty cool.
