Deer Hunters Wanted.  

Mar 18, 2017

Growing up in Ohio and working for different farms and construction companies, Matt Light learned what hard honest work was like.  On the football field, he found a home where strength met aggression and technique.  In the hunting woods, he found an appreciation and passion for the outdoors where focus on technique mattered just as much as it did on the football field.  Matt paid little attention to football outside of his hometown high school team, but college football recruiters were paying attention to him.  He played a full collegiate career at Purdue along side Drew Brees and soon found himself playing along side Tom Brady for the New England Patriots from 2001 to 2012.  Matt says that football taught him many lessons in life, but so has hunting where he says sometimes you just have one of those days where everything goes your way. Today, after spending 11 years in the NFL, he has set his sights on raising money for the Matt Light Foundation ( where he hopes to help the slightly misguided youth towards a life of success and leadership through connections with the outdoors. Oh, and Matt hunts now more than ever. As you might imagine, playing under Coach Bill Belichick for 11 years might have interrupted a deer season or two, so he's making up for lost time.
