Matt has a long history of tackling athletic challenges. At New Trier High School, Kaskey played for the football team, where he led the team as a captain in 2014 and was named to the All-Chicagoland, all-conference, and all-area team member.
Then, he attended Dartmouth, where he played offensive tackle for the football program for four years, beginning in 2015. During his college football career, Kaskey earned a number of awards including: All-Ivy honorable mention, All-Ivy League First Team, and the team’s Jake Crouthamel Award.
Kaskey signed with the Los Angeles Rams as an undrafted free agent following the 2019 NFL Draft. He’s since played 2 seasons with the Carolina Panthers.
Kaskey has always dreamed of applying his athleticism to bigger and more impactful endeavors. Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro is a dream that serves both of those purposes. As Kaskey told the Waterboys team, “Clean water is something that everyone can and should have access to”.
