Speak of the Devils

The premier podcast for Sun Devil football.

Jul 31, 2023

It was a devastating blow heading into a a difficult year. Michael Matus, one of the defense's key starters and team leaders, was lost for the season after tearing his ACL in fall camp. While rehabbing his knee, Michael stayed active by acting in a quasi-coaching role, mentoring his fellow defensive lineman. 

After the season, his fifth in Tempe, he faced a choice. Move on to the next chapter, or come back for another run. It really wasn't a choice. Not wanting to end his college career on a sour note, he's back in Tempe, ready to contribute to the revamped defense and to help activate the Valley.

In this episode, Michael and I discuss the hard road back from injury, the changes in the program over the years, his leadership role, the growing Texas influence in the program, the new-look D-line, and more.
