Combine Coach's Overall Comments

He has a good mentality and concentrates very well. He knows his defensive responsibilities and stays tuned into the game. Good dealing with a player with his back to the goal. He can be more aware of the runners around him at times. He generally plays simply and tries to make the right pass. He rushes at times and can weight passes better. He can improve his ability to play long and to find targets forward.
