Background Info: Kopec is a three-year starter for the Big Macs. He was voted to the third team of the Section 1-AAA All-Star Team last year. Matt was also a three-year member of the golf team.

Quotes from Canon-McMillan coach Sheila Mitchell: "Matt has come out strong this season. He is a returning starter, and has stepped right into the outside hitting position with force. Matt has 54 kills on the season and leads with 25 aces in 3 matches. An all-around player, Matt has stepped into the back row more this year and has 63 digs to date. Coming into this season I knew that we would have strong team with 5 returning starters in the line up. What sets us up even more is the leadership that Matt shows on and off the court. Being a co-captain this season, Matt helps the team prepare for game day and sets a positive example of what a leader should be."
