Combine Coach's Overall Comments
Solid combine ... one of the few players with a high soccer IQ... ability to see the next play was outstanding. I think your lack of fitness did not help you in the full-sided games; you had more of an impact in the small-sided games. Would need to work more on being a 2 way player in the midfield. It was a pleasure coaching you in the InfoSport combine. DH
