Combine Coach's Overall Comments
Matthew needs to improve his technical game, in order to have an impact at the next level. Additionally, he can improve his frame physically, and get fitter for the rigors of the next level, which will help with his entire game, including decision making. Better endurance will also makie him quicker on the turn.
