Combine Coach's Overall Comments
Reads the game very well. Looks to transition/distribute quickly when it is on to do so. Consistently made the routine saves. Communication must improve for the next level. Timing on crosses can improve with a better starting spot. Needs to develop a bigger presence in goal for the next level. Good potential
