Potato Farmer, Architect, Future Dancer

Mathew M

You should hear about Mathew May’s Spring of 2012, then you’ll get a pretty good idea of the kind of guy he is: In a three-week span, Mathew graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, started working at Hudl as a Coach Support Specialist, and got married. In three weeks. And he lived to tell about it!

While that’s impressive, what really stands out about Mathew is his assumed role as office handyman. When there’s a desk or chair that needs fixing or assembling, Mathew is your guy.

He’s also pretty good at making people laugh. It’s because of guys like him that a sarcastic font should exist.

“I grew up in Western Nebraska in the small town of Imperial. I attended Chase County High School where I played football and basketball, ran track, and wrestled.

“I spent much of my time growing up helping with our family-owned potato farming business. I have two brothers, one older and one younger.

“I attended UNL where I lettered four years in football and graduated in May of 2012 with a double major in business administration and marketing.”

Why does your name only have one ‘t’? Does this have anything to do with your love of wrestling? My mom didn’t want my name to be shortened to ‘Matt’. She wanted me to be called ‘Mathew,’ so she went with one ‘t’. Believe it or not, people still try it shorten it to ‘Mat’. That’s not even a name, that’s an object. Don’t let her find out. She’s a tough woman, she raised three boys.

What’s your favorite part of working at Hudl?
The people, talking with coaches, and wearing sweat pants to work.

What’s your favorite sport to play? And what’s your favorite sport to watch?
Football is my favorite sport to play. I enjoy watching it, as well, but I’m really starting to get into UFC.

If you could develop any talent in a week, what would you choose?
Dancing, then maybe I wouldn’t hate weddings so much.

What is the point of poking someone on Facebook?
To annoy them, but it’s better than ‘My Calendar’ birthday requests.

During 90s at Noon, what song do you always hope to hear?
Tag Team - “Whoomp! (There It Is)”
