The Matthew Sarb File

  • I chose Notre Dame because it has been my lifelong dream to play football here
  • My favorite place on campus is the 35-yard line
  • The Irish offensive player who will surprise people this year is Gary Godsey
  • The Irish defensive player who will surprise people this year is Darrell Campbell
  • A word to describe me on the field is suicidal
  • A word to describe me off the field is mellow
  • The people who have helped me the most since I've been at Notre Dame are my fellow walk-ons
  • The best advice I have ever been given is "It only takes one play" from my father
  • If I could bring anything from my hometown it would be El Burrito Mexicano
  • When my football days are over I will be a doctor
  • I would like to switch places for the day with an egyptian pyramid excavator
  • If I could have dinner with any three people in history, they would be Jesus, Knute Rockne and Patch Adams
  • If I could compete against any Notre Dame athlete (non-football), it would be Chad DeBolt (men's lacrosse)
  • Who will Notre Dame play in the 2002 Rose Bowl for the national championship? Texas
