Combine Coach's Overall Comments
Matt played primarily as a wide midfielder. He was a consistent player throughout the combine but just lacked a bit of effecriveness on the game. His technical and tactical skills are above average but there is nothing that stands out significantly. He can clearly play at the PDL level and would be a solid consistent player. He also played at right back and could also make a solid defender. His versatility in that way could help a team. With an improved presence on the field, and perhaps another season at PDL, he could develop the skills needed to perform consistently at USL/NASL level.
