Coach's Overall Comments:
Mike has good instincts in front of the goal. He must improve his timing of runs and his ability to finish with his head and his left foot. He drifts back into midfield as a forward and likes to combine. When he stayed up high, he was effective laying balls off. He needs to be more active in creating space for himself. Attitude is very positive. Mentally strong.
