Today on the BeachLifestyle Radio Show, Host Neil Haley will interview Retired NFL Offensive Linemen Matt Light!

Career Highlights

Light has played in 155 games with 153 starts over nine seasons with New England (2001-10). His 140 games are the third highest total of any active player, trailing only Kevin Faulk (154) and Tom Brady (143).

In his ten seasons in New England, Light has been a part of seven division championships, four conference titles and three Super Bowl crowns.

In 2009, Light was part of an offensive line that allowed the fewest sacks (18) by a Patriots line since the NFL moved to a 16-game schedule in 1978.

In 2008, Light started every game at left tackle as part of an offensive line that was a part of the best rushing season for the Patriots in more than 20 years in terms of rushing yards, rushing touchdowns and average yards per carry.

Light was named to the Associated Press All-Pro first team in 2007, and earned AFC Pro Bowl honors in 2006 and 2007. He is one of four Patriots offensive tackles to earn Pro Bowl honors since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger, joining Patriots Hall of Famer Bruce Armstrong, Leon Gray and Brian Holloway.

Light contributed to a Patriots offense that set all-time NFL records with 589 points and 75 touchdowns in 2007.

The Light Foundation

In February of 2003, Matt established the Light Foundation, a charity that awards scholarships to high school students in the places he has played football: his hometown of Greenville, Ohio, West Lafayette, Ind. and New England. Matt's foundation donated new weights, jerseys and equipment to his former high school team this past off-season.
