Positives: Patient, finesse blocker who flashes
power. Quick into run blocks, fights hard and
seals defenders from the action. Stays square,
does not overextend and blocks with leverage.
Intelligent, immediately picks up assignments

Negatives: Lacks footwork

in motion. Bends at the waist and must make
better use of blocking angles. Stands to improve
the strength of his base.
Analysis: A hard-working
