Matt was named to the All-Big 10 first team all-star’s following his senior season.
From there he went on to become the second pick of the New England Patriots (48th overall) and forever was a changed man. After earning a starting job on the very capable New England offensive line, Matt and the Patriots went on to shock the world by becoming the NFL Super Bowl Champions!
