MADISON, NJ — Representing Madison football, Matt Mulcahy has been selected as this week’s Mary Comito-State Farm Athlete of The Week. Mulcahy has helped lead the Madison Dodgers to an amazing 10-0 record so far.

“I think one of the reasons why we have been so successful is because of the senior leadership,” Mulcahy said. “They’re great leaders and they help the team remain calm."

Mulcahy rushed for over 100 yards and a touchdown in a 38-26 win against Hackettstown last Saturday. He has scored in three straight games for the Dodgers and has had an extensive workload due to a recent ACL injury from Matt Boyd.

“Honestly I’m just very grateful to have an opportunity to play,” Mulcahy said. “Just trying to be the best I can and help this team win."

Head Coach Chris Kubik has done a really fine job getting the team ready week in and week out and their performance shows.

“His (Kubik) commitment to the program is really amazing,” Mulcahy said. “He puts in a lot of time and effort—he shows how important the team is to him."

Mulcahy has been able to play alongside his big brother, P.J, who has been a role model for Matt his whole life.

“Seeing my big brother succeed early on in sports made me want to succeed,” Mulcahy said. “He’s always pushed me to not only be a better athlete, but to be a better person and it’s really awesome to play with him."

Matt listens to rap and rock to get pumped up, and has an interesting superstition that he does before the game.

“I have to put the right cleat on first and then put the left cleat on second,” Mulcahy said. “Then I have to tie the right cleat first and then tie the left cleat second."

He has aspirations to play football at Villanova or Delaware one day, and he idolizes Christian McCaffrey, who is the starting running back for Stanford.

The Dodgers are eyeing their second straight State Championship, but will have a tough semifinal matchup against rival Hanover Park on Saturday, November 19th at 1:00p.m.
