“Personally, I see myself as a guy who can help the team in multiple ways,” St. Michael-Albertville defender Matthew Feldick said to Northstar Football. “I play on defense, as well as offense this year and have played varsity special teams for a few years now. I also try to be as much of a leader and role model for everyone round me and always bring the energy to being everyone up around me. Last year went really well as we finished 8-2 losing to Elk River both times, one earlier in the year and in the section semifinals. We had a lot of young talent last year and a lot of returning experience this year, so we are all very excited about that. One of my favorite highlights was playing St. Cloud Tech at our home field on a rainy Saturday and beating a extremely talented Tiger team with guys like Brevyn Spann-Ford and James Kazcor who are going to the U of M and NDSU. We all played a very good game and moved on to the next round of the playoffs.”
Feldick is excited for STMA's move up a division this fall.
“This off-season I participated on my Varsity track team as a jumper and sprinter as well as spending lots of time in the weight room in winter lifting and getting to participate in the Mississippi 8 weightlifting competition,” Feldick explained to Northstar Football. “Me and all my boys obviously have high expectations. The ceiling is the limit. We know we are moving up a level and playing at the highest class in Minnesota but we just keep working and not listening to what anyone has to say. We all know the teams we will play won't care that we just moved up so we can't either. We have to go in to every game ready to compete and come out with a win. Individually I want to improve a lot in the leadership aspect on and off the field. Always bringing guys up who maybe got beat because I know they will have my back whenever things go wrong and adversity strikes. Me and my teammates have put a big emphasis on positivity and always always bringing each other back up no matter what happens.”
