Personally Trained by Paul Assad, Pro College Football Player Development and Scouting. Attended workouts in Pullman, WA in 2008. Has great balance and precision. Has good leg action but inconsistent at times sometimes wanting to pull with the upper leg too much but usually, smooth and has goo dposition on technique - could work on getting set to kick to get more power. With strength, game experience and confidence can be a very productive player perhaps.
