Evaluating Coach: Jason Sisneros
Seb Cook is an elite level athlete and D1 level defender. At 6'3" and 180 pounds, he can compete with anyone in almost every athletic category. Aside from his incredible athletic platform, he is technically skilled and has a cannon of a long ball and tackles with ferocity. He is strong in the air and able to be a threat as a target on set pieces, as well as taking them. I have coached Seb and watched him train and play in meaningful matches in person in the U.K. and in the U.S. and he is every bit of an NCAA D1 defender. In the classroom, Seb is an excellent student. Personally, he is a good teammate and gives off positive energy in training and in the locker room. He's responsible, mature and hard working and he will only continue to improve over the next year and will be an impact player in college in my assessment.
