Sean Matti Remembered Fondly By Purdue Community

Sean Matti may not have been well-known for his exploits on the football field as a Boilermaker, but you should see how highly his teammates are speaking of him. SB Nation’s Hammer and Rails has collected some heartfelt remembrances from Purdue teammates, and reflects that, even in Division I football, sometimes heart is all you need:

Take a look at those few tweets from his teammates. From a unanimous All-American down to the backup (now starting) walk-on long snapper Matti was respected by his teammates. There is no doubt in my mind he was going to be an essential leader this year as a fifth year senior even though few would know his name and he would only get polite applause on November 19th against Iowa on Senior Day. It is my hope that we still honor him on senior Day and there will be more than a few #22 jerseys in the stands.
