I watched Matt Green catching passes from people like Dan Snyder and Willie McNamara on the STOYAC Community Field, starting when he was a little kid. Then, Green did the same at Stoughton High for the Black Knights. Green, like Wes Welker, was a smart player, who was able to get open, catch the ball, and make a lot of extra yards after the catch. Is it no surprise that Matt is still doing his thing---this time for the Bears of Bridgewater State University?

Stoughton's Matt Green nabbed a school-record five touchdown passes as Bridgewater State University's grid squad beat Worcester State, 51-20, Friday night in Bridgewater. Green tied Steve Marshall's record of five touchdown in one game that was set against Westfield State in 1990. And, he still has time to accomplish even more--he's a junior! Matt finished the game with six receptions for a whopping 202 yards! Quarterback Mike McCarthy hit him for scores of 6, 30, 39, 60, and 60 yards!

After watching Green move up from Pop Warner, to high school, to college, you wonder--could a kid who can get open, catch the ball, and play smart help the Patriots at receiver in a couple of years? Don't count Matt out.

Bridgewater State will be heading to Fitchburg State next Saturday. We'll let you know how Matt fares.
