TIFFANY ON DZIAMA
“Almost immediately, it was easy to realize Matt is one of the fastest, and most ferocious athletes in the program.  He approaches the game with a warrior’s aggression.  His role will be as a defensive-midfielder, taking on the burden of defending some of the best offensive threats in the nation with a short stick.  Matt relishes such challenges, while also providing an offensive spark in the transition game.”
