Scouting Report
Technical (1 - 5: 5=strongest)
Category Score Comments
Dribbling 2 Played within his skill set
Passing 3 Very unselfish and basic in approach
1st Touch 2 Decent if not under pressure. Was good and getting it and giving it and getting into scoring areas.
Crossing N/A  
Finishing 2 Was very opportunistic and this came from hard work. Needs to work on being a pure finisher.
Heading 3 Good size contributed well to always challenging and being a threat in the box. Heading on goal could be sharper.

Tactical (1 - 5: 5=strongest)
Category Score Comments
Decision Making 3 Simple and smart.
Communication 2 Could be more demanding vocally.
Executes Under Pressure 2 Held the ball well but needs to get ball down quickly and tighter to his body. Just a greater sharpness or ease on the ball.
Movement Off Ball 3 Needs to develop those timed runs in behind and finding the ball.
Small-Sided Game 3 Covered lots of ground and kept defense honest and alert.
Full-Field Game 3 A work horse who pressured well, worked well with his teammates. Could be a bit more selfish. This is ok at times.

Physical Ability (1 - 5: 5=strongest)
Category Score Comments
Strength 3 Good size. Held ball well. Challenged well in the 18 yd box.
Speed 2 Need to work on that separation quality from defenders. This can come from properly timed run
Quickness 2  
Endurance 3.5 A very fit player with a tireless work ethic
Agility 2 Maybe working on a little more "lightness" in his step in terms of changing directions

Combine Coach's Overall Comments
A selfless player. Great work ethic and willingness to pressure as a forward. Very coachable. Needs to add other dimensions to his game. Very good at laying off balls to players in good position to score. Timed runs and 1v1 aspect to his ggame need to be developed to strengthen his overall game.
