Menifee’s Matthew Orzech Snaps Rams to SoFi – Los Angeles

Before Matthew Orzech’s snap in the final 10 minutes of the NFC Championship sent the Rams to Super Bowl LVII, he was a student from Azusa Pacific University. “his love was baseball,”Matt Orzech, Orzech’s father.

He played tight end for Azusa’s football club, which is the same position he held at Paloma Valley high school.

“It was a division two school … and that gave him and opportunity to play both,”Matt.

Matt claims that there was a decisive moment that ultimately led to Matt’s son’s focus on football for his future.

“The coach asked him, ‘Have you ever long snapped?’ And he said, ‘No.’ And he goes, ‘Well, you’re a pitcher for baseball, you should be able to do this,'”Matt.

Matthew, Number 42’s dad, said Matthew took long snapping to try “and the coach said, ‘You did so good that you’re going to travel the first game as a freshmen.'”

The new position proved to be a learning experience for him, despite his early promise.

“His first punt snap in college went sailing over the punter’s head about 20 yards,”Matt.

Matthew was also able to snap long enough to create a new level of pressure that, according to his father, is similar to the kicker.

“Because when you think about it, he’s snapping the ball with perfect rotation and location between his legs upside down and there are 300-pound guys that can hit him,”He stated.

Matt is confident that his son can handle the pressure going into Super Bowl 13 on February 13.

He will cheer Matthew on.

“I’m sure I’ll be in tears, cause I’m almost in tears thinking about it,”Matt.
