Combine Coach's Overall Comments:
 

Brian looks the part of a good left-sided defender.  Heís a smooth runner and good with the ball at his feet.  His general downfall during the combine was pure effort.  He didnít cover enough ground on the field and rarely got into the attack.  Also, Brian rarely changed speed and broke into a sprint.  It was hard to tell if he is fast or slow, because he never made an effort to chase down forwards or sprint to get into the attack.  His tactical awareness wasnít poor, but his mentality in defending situations needs to be more aggressive/tuned-in.  He has some talent and could be capable of playing in one of the USL pro leagues if he continues to train and put more effort into his play.
