BIO: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors the past two years.
POSITIVES: Hard-working blocker best in a small area. Sets with a wide base, strong in his upper body and turns opponents off the line. Extends and displays good hand jolt at the point of attack. Always looking for someone to hit and works well with teammates.
NEGATIVES: Not a nifty lineman and lumbers about the field. Lacks footwork and ability in space. Inconsistent with the shotgun snap.
ANALYSIS: A tough and vocal leader on the football field, Matla has solid size yet is a limited athlete with marginal upside.
