Coach's Overall Comments:
Tom has the size and tactical sense to compete for a spot on a USL D2 or developmental player at the next level for the center back position. Working on his quickness would definitely increase his value. He makes up for possible quickness and speed issues by being a good scorer with solid positioning and tactical sense.
