Combine Coach's Overall Comments
Physically, PJ has the tools.  He needs to improve positioning when defending, if he wants to make it to the next level. Technically, a little inconsistent at times. Needs to become better on the ball, so he is not just a defender.  Work on speed of play, and making proper decisions quicker under pressure. More games at a higher level will assist with this. Good foundation.
