ATL Spurs Profile: Matt Gragg, Vice Chair
1994 I lived in Texas and had the opportunity to watch a world cup match. Germany plays in Dallas and Jurgen Klinsmann scores 2 on South Korea. One being this amazing goal. He joined Tottenham that summer. He left but I have stayed ever since.
2) Have you been to a match at White Hart Lane?
Finally made it to my first match this fall. A disappointing draw with Leicester but still an amazing experience and so happy to get to see the lane before it is gone.
3) What’s your favorite Tottenham Hotspur moment?
There are many but winning the league cup over Chelsea in 2008 was something special. Amazing stuff. Woodgate and Ledley were incredible if not for those pesky injuries what could have been….(honorable mentions—3-2 at the death star in 2010. Bale, VDV and Kaboul. AC Milan 1-0 at the San Siro in Champions League.)
4) Who is your favorite Spurs player and why?
This is a tough one to call honestly. So many over the years. It’s hard to argue with players like Ginola and Ledley King or Gareth Bale. But for now (since I am going to live in the now and not the past) I would have to say my favorite player is Toby Alderweireld. I love his consistency and professionalism on the pitch. I hope he continues to exhibit this level of play canadian online casinos for many years for Spurs. His defending has been top notch not to mention his excellent passing out of the back.
5) Where are you from originally?
Live all over the US. But born in Port Arthur Texas and have lived in New Jersey, Houston, Dallas and now Atlanta for the past 8 years.
6) What is your professional background?
Psychology background but work in the financial sector. Worked at DFCS for a time as well.
7) Did you play organized football/soccer?
Since I was 5 absolutely. Played it all my life. Absolutely loved it. Favorite sport to play and watch. Nothing better than the beautiful game.
8) What would your fellow Atlanta Spurs members be surprised to learn about you?
I really love film. One credit away from a film minor in college. I still go to the theater and think it is really the only way to see a film unless you have a pretty amazing theater room at home. Wish we had more art theaters in Atlanta. Severely underrepresented.
