I Missed This Colgate Connection

This week's opponent has the benefit of a Colgate football player in their strength program: Matt Domenyancic. Matt was an Air Force transfer back in the mid 90's and was a big part of the turn around under Biddle. Looks like he is a SWAT officer in Fairfax county and helps out the Hoya strength program. I can't say I'm surprised to see Matt is a SWAT officer and that he's pursuing strength and conditioning. Perfect fit for what I remember of him. Here's the Hoya write up for those that don't want to click the link:

Matt works as a police officer in Fairfax County, where he is a member of the SWAT team. Before coming to D.C., he was a police officer in Connecticut and assistant strength and conditioning coach under Steve Plisk at Yale for four years. Matt graduated from Colgate University where he played linebacker and was named Defensive MVP of the first Patriot League team to receive a bid to the national I-AA playoffs. For the Patriot League Champion Red Raiders, Matt was the league's leading tackler, named First Team All-League, earned Honorable Mention All-America honors, and had a scholarship endowment for a Colgate football player dedicated in his honor.

Prior to his time at Colgate, Matt attended the United States Air Force Academy for two years and was a member of the football and powerlifting teams. He was the state of Colorado's powerlifting champion in 220 pound class and set three state records and went on to be nationally ranked and placed in the top five in collegiate nationals. Matt started both ways at fullback and linebacker for Center High School in Monaca, PA, receiving numerous awards for both offense and defense during that time including being Defensive MVP of the Three Rivers Conference, and picked for the Fabulous 22 by Pittsburgh Post Gazette at fullback. Matt earned a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Colgate University and a Masters of Science in Forensic Science from the University of New Haven. He is USAWF Club coach certified and has peer reviewed articles for the NSCA.

The Hoyas got themselves a good one there. Just don't coach them too well Matt!
