Clay Matthews has seen several members of his family play in the NFL. However, he wants to be the most famous NFL of them all.

Matthews said at the NFL Media Day that he is determined to outplay his family name, which includes having a Hall of Fame last name. Matthews has already been in the two years, but is turning out to be one of the best.

Matthews will be the second member of his family to play in the Super Bowl this Sunday. His uncle, Bruce Matthews, a Hall of Famer, lost to the St. Louis Rams in the family’s only NFL experience. The Hall of Fame Offensive Lineman was a member of the Tennessee Titans when they lost to the St. Louis Rams in 1999.

“I was very privileged as a youth to have a father who played in this league, and have so much family history and be blessed with all that I was given in this life,” Matthews said. “But yeah, I’ve kind of hard to work to kind of get out of the shadow of my father and family or whatnot, and I’m doing a good job of that.”
