Matt has been playing soccer since he was a little kid; he was inspired by Christian Ronaldo. Matt said he was captain through 7-9 grades. In 10th grade, he was pulled up to varsity.  He was captain again for 11th and 12th grade.

Matt’s teammate and cousin, Alex Slover, said,”Matt is a quiet leader and leads out on the field.”
