His favorite motivational quote is: “In the end, it’s not going to matter how many mistakes you make, but how you used them to make you stronger.”  Matthew is still deciding what he wants to do after graduation and is exploring college opportunities.

Here is what his parents, Gary and Linda, want Matthew to know:  “We are proud of you and the young man you are becoming.  You have the heart of a Champion. We love you and believe you can accomplish all you desire.”

We have loved watching Matthew through the years and can’t wait to see what he accomplishes for the remainder of this season.
