WHAT THEY’RE SAYING ABOUT COACH MATHEY
"Ed Mathey is a very good baseball coach that works extremely hard. His team's always compete and play fundamentally solid baseball. Northern Illinois is fortunate to have Coach Mathey in their dugout."
- Scott Stricklin, University of Georgia Head Coach

"It is always a pleasure to see Coach Mathey's teams play. They are certainly well prepared and have a winner's mentality and an edge to them that you know the game is never over. I have had the privilege of meeting some of his players and I know his kids respect him greatly and he has a great relationship with them. I am confident in recommending anyone there."
- Pat Murphy, El Paso Chihuahuas Manager (San Diego Padres, AAA)

"I played for Coach Mathey for four years (at NCC and NIU) and he has helped me tremendously during my time playing for him and afterwards. I can honestly say I would not have had the opportunity to play professionally without him. What I learned from him has helped me be successful both in college and in pro baseball. He is one of the most loyal coaches you will find in Division I baseball."
- Joe Piekarz, former NCC and NIU pitcher and former Oakland Athletics farmhand

"Playing for Coach Mathey during my collegiate career was a great experience both on the field and off. He was a mentor to me on the field and helped me off the field with academics and with my personal life. Coach Mathey was always there for me 24 hours a day and not just when we were on the field and between the lines."
- Matt German, former NIU All-American pitcher and former professional in Phillies organization

"Coach Mathey has an excellent rapport with his players and institutes an excellent mentor program among the members of his team that really aids individual player development. He does a great job in making use of each of his players and their individual skills. He utilizes all the players on his roster by getting them productively into games."
- Bob Szymkowski, Area Scouting Supervisor, Philadelphia Phillies
