Basketball. Journey. Community. Matt Santangelo.

Matt Santangelo always knew he was meant to play basketball. It was all he ever wanted to do from the time he was a toddler, staring out of the window of his south Portland home watching his brothers play in the driveway, all the way into his 30’s. Yet it wasn’t until middle school that he knew he had to pursue his dream as far as it would take him. This is his story.
