Combine Coach's Overall Comments
Charlie was a tireless worker. He played mainly as a right back but filled in well at center back as needed. He has a great willingness to learn and improve. Very coachable. Strikes the bal lvery well over distance. Needs to stil improve many other aspects of his game to make an impact at the pro level. Too many easy giveaways. Needs to talk with dellow defenders more and stay connected. He has a chance at the pro level if he is willing to put in the work.
