Jim Hayford on Seiferth: “Martin returns as the leading field goal percentage shooter in the Big Sky, a top shot blocker and a top rebounder. As he is able to do those things consistently, he will prove to be a top big man in the Big Sky Conference. We are looking for Martin to have a consistent season as a frontcourt player for the Eagles.”

Career: Despite playing just one season as an Eagle, Seiferth already ranks sixth in career blocked shots (68) on EWU’s all-time leaders list. The record is 99 held by Paul Butorac (2004-07).

2012-13: Seiferth made 62.3 percent of his shots from the field to lead the Big Sky and rank as the fourth-best single season performance in school history. Seiferth finished the season averaging 8.2 points, 6.3 rebounds (sixth in the Big Sky) and 2.2 blocked shots per game (second in the Big Sky and 41st in NCAA Division I). His 68 blocked shots moved him past teammate Venky Jois (with 66) for the EWU single season record. Eastern had 176 blocked shots for the season to shatter the previous school record of 130 set in 2006. Seiferth and Venky Jois finished with 68 and 66, respectively, as both surpassed EWU’s record of 51 set in 2005-06 by Paul Butorac. Seiferth played only 24 minutes in his last two games of the season because of foul trouble in one game and then a hip pointer suffered in the season finale. But one weekend earlier, he had his third and fourth double-doubles of the season, including an effort of 14 points, 14 rebounds, seven blocked shots and two steals against North Dakota (3/2/13). One game earlier, he had 11 points, 21 rebounds and a pair of blocked shots in EWU’s 88-80 overtime loss to Northern Colorado (2/28/13). His rebounding total was the third-most in recorded school history, ranking only behind the 22 by Paul Butorac (11/18/06 versus Lewis-Clark State) and 28 by Dave Hayden (1/15/72 versus Oregon Tech). Seiferth broke his own school record when he had eight blocked shots in EWU’s 81-76 victory over Sam Houston State (2/23/13), helping the Eagles to a school and Big Sky Conference record 16 as a team. Earlier in the 2012-13 season he was the Big Sky Conference Player of the Week after finishing with 27 points, 17 rebounds and a school-record seven blocked shots in a 96-79 loss at Cal State Northridge. 

2011-12: Redshirted.

Oregon: Seiferth played in 12 games for the Oregon Ducks in the 2010-11 season and averaged 4.3 minutes per outing. He finished with eight points, nine rebounds, three blocked shots and a pair of assists, while making 3-of-9 shots from the field and 2-of-4 free throws. His top performance came against Willamette on Dec. 11, 2010, when he scored four points and had three rebounds in the 100-67 victory. He is Eastern’s first transfer from a Pac-12 Conference school in nearly 10 years. Josh Barnard transferred from the University of Washington in 2002, and lettered in the 2003-04 season when the Eagles made their first and only appearance in the NCAA Tournament. Besides Barnard, Scott McKie is the only other former Pac-12 player to compete for the Eagles since Eastern became a member of NCAA Division I in the 1983-84 school year. McKie played at Oregon State and Mt. Hood Community College before lettering for the Eagles in the 1983-84 season.

High School: Graduated from Max Taut School in Berlin, Germany, in 2010. Seiferth played the 2009-10 season for Berlin’s VFB Hermsdorf club team under the direction of head coach Jan Michaelis. He averaged nearly 13 points and seven rebounds while making 50 percent of his shots from the field. He also spent two seasons (2007-09) playing for head coach Hendrik Rödl with ALBA Berlin’s youth team. That squad won the Nachwuchs Basketball Bundesliga League (NBBL) Championship in the 2008-09 campaign, while finishing as runner-up during the 2007-08 season. He also played for Marzahner Basket Bären (Berlin) during the 2006-07 season.

Personal: Born Sept. 18, 1990, in Berlin, Germany. Communication studies major. Son of Andrea Seiferth and Hans-Joachim Seiferth. His brother, Andreas Seiferth, plays professionally for TBB Trier in Germany’s BBL (Basketball Bundesliga), the highest classification of club basketball in Germany. Martin has visited 11 different countries and can speak three different languages (German, English and French). His fellow Germans Frederik Jörg and Thomas Reuter are also in the Eastern program. Name is pronounced “mar-teen sigh-fert.”
