Combine Coach's Overall Comments:
Kyle is very strong and can defend physically. At times, he ball watches or dives in, but he tackled hard. He is comfortable on either side at the back and gets forward effectively. He has a very long and effective throw in. His attitude and mentality are excellent and he showed great concentration.
