While most defensemen in this era of college lacrosse are praised for steady, solid, and almost “unnoticed” play, Matt is a long stick who brings Hollywood spice to his position. He can de-stick a dodger, fire long passes on frozen ropes, and even go to the cage himself, sticking the ball in the net. Matt has the confidence to step up and make big plays in big games. He also has that attitude and grittiness a coach loves to see in a defenseman: he can defend just about anyone when he accepts the challenge. Matt will continue to compete at the long-stick midfield position, but he has proven to be capable at close defense…2010: Earned a starting role in Brown’s Ivy Playoff game at Cornell…Played in 13 games…Picked-up 20 ground balls and caused 10 turnovers…Scored a goal in Brown’s Ivy win over Dartmouth, and registered an assist in a win over Harvard…2009: Saw action in all 16 games for the Bears…His 21 ground balls were ninth on the Brown team…Picked-up four ground balls against both Denver and Princeton…2008: Enjoyed a solid freshman year, playing in 11 games for the Bears…Picked-up four ground balls…Secondary School Background: A graduate of the Hotchkiss School, where he lettered in lacrosse (2), football (2) and wrestling (2)…Three-time New York City Empire selection, and team captain in 2006…All-New England selection at defense…2007 Founders League Champions…Earned the Hotchkiss School Stuart Award...Personal: The son of Jeffrey and Kimberly Greenberg of New York City…Has three sisters, Caroline, Lizzie, and Annabel…Enjoys skiing, surfing and fly-fishing… Architectural Studies concentration.
