Coaches Comments: Matt is a ferocious and punishing run blocker. Running behind Matt is always a good decision. On defense he is just as ferocious. Matt is also a disruptive force. His 9 TFL and 3.5 sacks are evidence of that. Things like this are the reason why Matt is one of the most dominant lineman in Region 1 and all of District 10.
