He still treasures the lifetime friendships he established on the baseball, basketball, and tennis teams at Saint Ignatius.
Matt was a three-year letter winner in basketball and attributes much of his success to exceptional teammates and coach Larry Arthur, Hon ’19. He led the Cats to a 20-4 record and a Sweet 16 appearance as a junior, averaging 10.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 2.3 assists per game.

Matt discovered a new group of friends through tennis, a sport he learnt while living in Florida. “Tennis is a sport for individuals. You can’t blame the referee or coach whether you win or lose. It’s you vs the opponent.” He was a two-year letterwinner who led the tennis team to a league championship as a District qualifier and All Sun West Performer in junior year. In the blustery Cleveland springs, he remembers practicing on courts along the Shoreway.
Matt attended Creighton University on a basketball scholarship after gravitating toward a Jesuit college. His junior year, he participated in an NCAA tournament and was happy to be a part of a squad that helped Creighton return to the top 50 in the country.
