Cats Confidential: Matt Dudek
Meet the new GOAZCATS.com video reporter! I'm Evyn Murray, a student majoring in journalism at Arizona, as well as an analyst for Dorm Room Sports Chat on UAtv. I also do work for KAMP Radio, which includes appearances on sports shows and color commentary for basketball games.
Previously, I worked in Arizona Athletics doing interviews for football and basketball. To keep it simple regarding talking sports, I believe that if you're not having fun, you're not doing it right.
During a busy recruiting week, Matt Dudek, director of on-campus recruiting and player personnel for the Arizona football team, sat down to talk recruiting, family and, well, Twitter.
Dudek isn't one to smooth talk a recruit while dressed in a suit and try to impress them with typical, convincing lines. He's convinced being himself is plenty good enough.
A family atmosphere is important, too.
"It's one thing to preach it, and it's another thing to live it," said Dudek, who believes that the word family is entirely overused in the recruiting game.
While Dudek feels a strong bond to his Arizona family, he also holds tight to his wife, 6-month-old twins, and 3-year-old daughter, Abby.
Abby sits down with us, too, while Matt explains how excited she gets to see RichRod and one of his signature hashtags on Twitter.
Editor's note: GOAZCATS.com is excited about the addition of Evyn Murray to our team. She will enhance the video component of the site and complement our coverage with a variety of interviews and features moving forward.
