Combine Coach's Overall Comments:
He is a right-footed left back, capable of playing accurately with both feet. The timing of his overlapping runs is excellent and he finished those plays with an accurate cross, or goal. Scored a great header in the run of play. His passing out of the back is clean. He can improve his footwork in receiving some balls an setting himself up as well as his ability to bend balls (crosses and up the line). His defending is solid.
