Combine Coach's Overall Comments
Despite his quiet demeanor, plays very big in gagmes. Did everything asked of him and won all individual battles all throughout the combine. Can play in USL/NASL and once adjusted to speed of play, can really help a team. In the right environment, after a year or two of seasoning, could make the jump to MLS.
