Matt Goul:'s all-star journalist shares his story of capturing moments of JOY
Play • 1 hr 15 min

Matt Goul has spent 20 years honing his craft of journalism, writing and storytelling so that he can capture moments of joys forever.  Now a cornerstone of the northeast Ohio sports scene with and the Plain Dealer, Goul's tremendous work ethic and grit started early. As a 240lb freshmen, Goul stuck with football after a freshmen basketball season that he cherished. He then served as the cameraman for both the boys and girls basketball programs at Oberlin and fell in love with capturing the scene from behind the lens.  This parlayed itself into a journalism major at Kent State University and twenty-some years later coaches and players measure themselves by earning a spot in his top 25 poll and coverage.  Although he is just one man, Gould does a yeoman's effort to cast a wide net and cover as many quality football and basketball games as possible.  As coaches, we thank him for his ability to write, film and capture the moments that we all cherish so much.  In his first job in PA, Goul transformed his physical self as well with a daily regimen of lifting and running--eventually trimming down to his current 170 pound frame.  Even on bicep day, Goul's steno pad rests firmly in place while the southpaw films and writes like a maestro.
