Coaches Q&A with Mike Matta:
What are his strengths?
“He is a great athlete. He runs well, he moves in space well and he catches the ball well. He has great vision and probably has some of the best hands on our team. He’s a great blocker.”
He is going to play on the defensive side of the ball this year for us.
“This kid just wants to play. Every coach that has recruited him asked him where do you want to play? His answer is always the same. Where ever I get on the field the fastest.”
What position is he going to play in college?
“The head coach’s quote is, “I don’t know if you are going to play running back, H-back, tight end, linebacker or defensive end. All I know is you are a football player.”
