Fox 40 Prospect Challenge (Central): Crimson Tide McDonough fighting for post-secondary ride

Matthew McDonough fell in love with football the day he stepped on the field four years ago.

“The feeling of being on a team and being close with all 50 guys to the point where it feels like a family is something that you can’t get from any other sport,” said Matthew.

The running back plays in the Ontario Football Conference (OFC) for the North Halton Crimson Tide and for his high school team, the Georgetown District Rebels.

Last season he got 1294 yards and averaged around 7.9 yards per carry, as well as getting 12 touchdowns.

His main goal for the Fox 40 Prospect Challenge is to get ranked and noticed because being able to play football at a higher post-secondary level is the ultimate goal.

Aside from the FPC, Matthew also has his eyes set on the CFC100 as well.

During the offseason, the Crimson Tide plays rep hockey and works out to stay in shape for football. He also took part in an elite camp at Speed Academy this offseason where he learned a lot of new techniques that he has used to help improve his game.

Moreover, on the field his biggest role model is Odell Beckham Jr. “He is an amazing football player and he is able to keep you on the edge of your seat every down of football he plays,” said Matthew, “he plays with so much passion and drive, off the field he has a swagger that no other NFL player comes even close to.”

“He is definitely someone I try to model my game after and I aspire to be like,” added the Crimson Tide.

Matthew loves football because there is no better feeling than the build up for a big game on weekends.

“That feeling pushes me to work harder and harder and drives my love for the game,” commented Crimson Tide.
