Matt Hegarty - The Right Kind Of Guy For Notre Dame

Here is a great article about a smart young man with his head screwed on straight. This is quite refreshing after the OSU fiasco, the U$C Bush Heisman shame and pending debacles at UNC, Auburn, and TN. It seems all you hear about are the arrests, DWI’s, suspensions, felonies and misdemeanors committed by college football players.

Matt Hegarty is a 6’5” 4-star, offensive lineman from tiny Aztec New Mexico (pop. 6,300+) who will be attending summer school in South Bend. He brings a 3.8 GPA to Notre Dame.

Couple of interesting tidbits from that article.

Matt understands and accepts he will be redshirted his freshman year. That says two things. Our offensive line finally has some depth and that Coach Brian Kelly is bringing in players who understand that they need further development.

Matt has added 20 pounds to his high school season ending weight and thanks to the Notre Dame long distance conditioning program under Paul Longo, he weighs in at a respectable 292 pounds of lean muscle. Matt dedicated himself to the ND fitness program this past spring while finishing up at Aztec.

Bring your long underwear Matt, welcome to long Northern Indiana winters.

Here’s hoping you end up at left tackle guarding the next Notre Dame Golden Boy.
