Matt Milner, Sophomore- Football

Major: Applied Physics

Q:   What would you like to do with your major?

A:   I hope to get involved in the engineering field. One day, I would like to work in the government sector building weapons.

Q:   How do you manage your athletic, academic, and personal responsibilities?

A:    It’s all about time management. Balancing practice, workouts, and team meetings; you have to be very determined to get your school work done.

Q:   Do you have a quote or philosophy that you live by?

A:    Try to live without regrets because you never know how much time you have left.

Q:   What has been your best moment (to date) while playing for ECU?

A:    Last year in our game vs Southern Miss, I made a sack late in the 4th quarter to prevent Southern Miss from scoring, in turn, giving the possession back to ECU which helped seal the game for ECU.

Q:   What advice would you give to future ECU student-athletes?

A:    Learn to manage your time well, as soon as you can, because once you get behind, it is very hard to catch up.
