Physical Description
Lean body that will always be on the thin side. Medium frame, slender features, young face, will add strength.
Mechanical Notes
Abbreviated windup w/ serious shoulder tilt through drive. Arm plunges severely in the back. Needs to tone down delivery, which will be easier to do as body adds strength.
