3 QUESTIONS FOR MATTEO
Biggest soccer influences and why?
"Tom Barlow, a current player for the University of Wisconsin, was a senior on the varsity soccer team at Chaminade when I was a freshman. He took me under his wing and taught me how to approach the game in an organized, hard-working manner."
Do you have an idol or hero?
"Kevin Kalish. He was my soccer coach while playing for St. Louis Scott Gallagher who showed me how to carry myself on and off the field. His hard-working attitude and care for others inspired me."
"I chose Yale because of its superior academics and long-standing athletic tradition. The coaches have great soccer IQs and I want to be a part of the team that brings the Ivy League title back to Yale."
Coach Stannard On Matteo: "I've known Ryan for the past 2-3 years and he is the first player of this recruiting class to commit to being a future Yale Bulldog. He is someone that I knew I wanted to bring to Yale when I first took over here because he comes from a top club, St. Louis Scott Gallagher, and is coached by one of the top youth coaches in the country in Kevin Kalish. He not only plays both sides of the ball equally well, but he embraces being a two way player. He is a box to box CM that can probably play in the backline in a pinch, if needed. He can also play as an attacking CM. Ryan is good on the ball, good in possession, and does a great job of breaking up plays and winning tackles, which is very important to me as a CM. He will bring great competitiveness right away."
