What Scouts Say: "What he does in 90 minutes is unparalelled ... For the kind of run Air Force went on you need a special player and he was that player ... Technically superb with exceptional feet. Can ping a ball with both feet all over the field and he doesn't turn the ball often ... Clutch player who scores big-time goals ... Connects the game ... Faster with the ball than without ... Incredible engine, fierce competitor and built like a brick house ... Around even better players, he can do better. Needs to be seen with better players ... Teams might be scared away because of military career track ... Versatile player who could be more of a holding midfielder in MLS although never asked to defend much at Air Force."
