The person I look up to the most is Clay Matthews. He's an linebacker for the Greenbay Packers. He is so inspiring because he made me want to become a linebacker too. Also in his first season he has 11.5 sacks 1 interception and 36 solo tackles (in 11 games). Just being a rookie, he's having a great season.
Clay Matthew is so strong. Anyone who can bench 250 pounds 23 times has to be strong. Running through 350 pound linemen isn't an easy task either. You can't tell me that long dirty blonde greasy hair isn't good looking either (actually I think he really needs a hair cut).
Anyone who plays for the Packers has to be smart! Then again he did graduate college.
Courageous; You've got to be courageous to run full speed at guys twice your size. Also Knowing that you can't mess up and still being a "play maker" is pretty brave too. Athletic; He has to be athletic, He's in the in N.F.L for crying out loud. Just to back that up, he does run forty yards in 4.67 seconds.
Matthews always looks happy when he gets a sack. Even better, after a big play Matthews calms himself down, and acts like it never happened. Clay is awesome at busting through the line. Also he is really fast, he covers tight ends like white on rice, a glass of milk, a paper plate in a snow storm(it's really fun to watch the frustrated tight ends).
Matthews is a great player. He has really earned my respect. I hope he has a great career. GO PACKERS!!!
