Combine Coach's Overall Comments
Matt played as a wide midfielder and center forward. He has good all-around abilities and shows potential to play at the professional level. He was more effective as a forward. He could and needs to be more threatening from the wide positions which I believe he has the ability to do. He got around more up front and caused more problems. Certainly worth a look now at NASL/USL Pro level and possible MLS with more refinement.
