Coach's Overall Comments:
Brandon is most effective as a wide player. On occasion, he was able to beat defenders with pace, but was too predictable in his dribbling. His defending and tackling could improve in terms of playing at a professional level. As a wide player, he tended to hang out and wait for the ball to come to his feet too frequently. Keep playing!
