WHAT THEY ARE SAYING
Chris Sailer: Matt is an outstanding kicker. He has a strong leg and shows nice technique and consistency. Gets great height on his ball. Field goals are excellent. Kickoffs are solid and continue to improve. Matt is a great athlete with a bright future. A fine young man with a great attitude and work ethic. Great prospect.

ESPN: Matt is a very coordinated athlete who has proven himself multiple times. He is a good ball striker on field goals. His ball comes out clean and gets good height as it leaves his foot ... Matt seems to have the ability to focus and stay calm in pressure situations. He will be expected to compete early in college and seems to have the maturity to be able to handle the competition.
