Campbell and Andy Isom began texting but did not meet in person for months because he was on his way to play summer ball in Canada.
“OK, this isn’t working,” Campbell remembered thinking.
Campbell knew Willie Isom had once dated a teammate, Hilary Kaufusi (now married to BYU football player Bronson Kaufusi). Liking what she saw, Campbell sent Willie Isom a Facebook message to see if he had a girlfriend.
To her dismay, he replied that he was dating someone but wanted to set her up with his little brother Andy, who he knew she would like. "I didn’t know the brother." When Willie Isom asked to pass along her number, she hesitated, but she eventually agreed at the encouragement of her father.
One day in February 2014, Martinez and other members of the BYU women’s track and field team were working out in the weight room when a teammate called her over to speak with a basketball player named Kyle Collinsworth.
The 6-foot-6 guard was sporting a mullet hairdo and wearing a cutoff hoodie, shorts and clunky black snow boots.
There was some teasing by family about her having an invisible boyfriend, but at the end of the summer, Isom proved he was real.
The basketball star and track standout are not the first student-athlete couple to marry at BYU.
The couple is preparing to be married July 30 in the Draper LDS Temple.
Because competition is second nature to both, there is mutual understanding about staying after practice for extra work and remaining positive after a loss or humble after a victory.
He grinned as he asked her to “rate his outfit.” “I looked at him and said, ‘Probably a 3,’” Martinez said.
“Then I turned around and walked away, thinking, ‘I’m the biggest brat. '” But the two would meet again, and somewhere along the way, a friendlier relationship developed.
