Taking Aim with … Apollos WR Matt Sewall

Part 2 of 2


By Tom Alexander, Orlando Apollos Team Reporter

SAN ANTONIO — Who are the Orlando Apollos? Every Apollo has a story, and each day of training camp, we’ll be sitting down with Apollos players, coaches and staff members for a quick Q&A so you can get to know the people putting their hearts and souls into winning the first-ever Alliance of American Football championship.

We caught up with Apollos wide receiver Matt Sewall. The Bryant University product grew up in Portsmouth, Rhode Island, where he was an option quarterback in high school. Sewall converted to receiver in college, and attended mini-camps with multiple NFL teams, including the New York Jets and Houston Texans. In Part One of our Q&A, we talked about football. Today, we’ll get to know Matt Sewall a little bit better.

Q: What’s your favorite food?

A: Chicken parm. I love a good chicken parm.

Q: What type of music do you listen to?

A: Hip-hop. Mix in a little bit of country, but mostly hip-hop.

Q: What’s your personal philosophy?

A: “No one cares, work harder.” Really, nobody cares if you’re complaining, just work harder. I look at it every day. If I’m waking up and I’m sore, I just look at my phone and it [my phone background] says, “Nobody cares, work harder.”

Sewall and 74 other Apollos are working to win the final 52 roster spots before the first game of The Alliance of American Football season. Orlando hosts the Atlanta Legends Saturday, February 9, at Spectrum Stadium on the UCF campus. The game will be broadcast nationally on CBS. Get your tickets now: http://bit.ly/ApollosTix
