Combine Coach's Overall Comments
A very passionate individual and works well in team atmosphere. Overall, his mobility for a CM was lacking a bit, but movement defensively was good. Very strong and competes fiercely. Could think of learning more about how to play centrally and could improve drastically. Has the ability to find the ball when attacking is good, but needs to do it consistently.  Could test himself at USL level.
