Sorry I'm a little late with this, but thank you so much for taking the time to post this level of detail in analyzing the video. He and I definitely discuss his game video, although sparingly (video review is cited in a few articles as one of the things that contributes to burnout at this age). You make several great points that I can bring up with him over the summer. Much appreciated! As a general comment, I think you're picking up on something he and his coaches have been discussing recently - how quick he is to get rid of the ball. Most of the time, it's the right thing. But occasionally I and his coaches will see a play that, while decent, could have been something much better if he had taken a touch or two more. Believe it or not, it's a weight / strength issue. He has never had a thick frame, and doesn't carry much weight. It's always a fight for him to stay on the ball when challenged, and, to be honest, he hasn't historically won that fight very much. Technically, he has the skill to keep it - he gets bullied physically. When he senses that a defender(s) might be closing in (whether they truly are or not), his gut reaction is to make a pass immediately. One of the things he and his coaches are working on is his attitude when challenged, to have the will and confidence to stay on the ball for that additional touch or two and find the killer pass, not just the first pass.
