Coaches Comments: Matthew Buchman had a very productive year for our football team as a Sophomore. He became a dynamic playmaker offensively, and a talented free safety on defense. He has taken his game to another level through his hard work and dedication during this off-season. A true three-phase player is one of our team leaders.
