Alex Khvatov:  Describe your East/West Shrine Game experience.
Matt Hazel:  It is a great experience.  I was only here for a week, but I feel like I have known these guys my whole life.  It was also great being around the kids. 
Alex Khvatov:  What was the highlight for you this week?  
Matt Hazel:  Everything we did, we did it as a team.  It felt like we have known each other for four years. 
Alex Khvatov:  What are your strengths?
Matt Hazel:  Ball skills, route running and blocking.
Alex Khvatov:  What were you trying to show scouts this week?   
Matt Hazel:  I wanted to show them that I could play with the best.  I had a heck of a week.  I am from the FCS, but I proved that I could play with guys from the SEC and other big conferences.  I have received a lot of great feedback. 
Alex Khvatov:  Who was the toughest DB that you faced this week? 
Matt Hazel:  I come up with three guys.  Andre Hal (Vanderbilt), Ricardo Allen (Purdue) and Pierre Desir (Lindenwood).   
Alex Khvatov:  Tell us about your career at Coastal Carolina. 
Matt Hazel:  The highlight was playing against Liberty this year.  We were down by 17 points.  We were going back and forth.  We won in overtime.  My teammate blocked a field goal, and it put us on top. 
Alex Khvatov:  Finish the sentence, Matt Hazel is…. 
Matt Hazel:  Goofy.
