A savvy lacrosse player, Matt is an athlete others want to have on their team, on their line. He makes his teammates around him better due to his strong comprehension of the game and good vision. Matt has the ability to thrive at both ends of the field and thus he will be asked to know our offensive and defensive schemes inside and out. One of the quickest men in the program, Matt will also be asked to initiate and ignite our offense.
