Combine Coach's Overall Comments

Ortlieb had a steady showing at center back.  There were times when he was beaten by good attacking players, but his effort to get back and make plays was good.
In possession, he struggled with his passing/receiving technique.  A few of his passes were given away without too much pressure and needs to improve in this area.
He showed good strength and power; his defensive presence was good as he got into positions to block shots and make plays.  He could be a little more vocal and make sure his presence is felt by the opposing attacking players.
