What have we done for us to get a pic like this?
We must’ve been really really good. Hah!
On a serious note, Matt was recently interviewed by the The Orange County Register and here’s some of our favorite quotes from the interview:
On his father who died 2 years ago due to complications:
“He was a pretty big rock. A rock for a lot of people. It was tough. When you’re 22, 23 you still have a lot of questions to ask your Dad. I guess silly things. Questions like how do you know what girl to ask out? What’s the right car to buy? Is this house the right investment?”
On when he first joined Team USA:
“Guys had been playing with the team for at least eight years and I was the new guy, the young guy. There were a lot of snide remarks. Stuff like ‘Oh, the young guy on the team.’ They acted like they were joking but it still didn’t sit right with me. I didn’t want to be that guy. I didn’t want to be the ‘young guy.’ I started turning it into a healthy rage to come into the gym with the attitude, ‘Yeah, I might be young but there’s a reason I’m here. I’m not just here because I’m lucky. I deserve to be here.'”
GROW THE GAME!
