Six foot two and 155 pounds?? Holy coat rack Batman. For a second year players which would have him at 19-20? Please tell me that is a typo for 175.

 

That would be one very tall, skinny & wiry fellow.

Mark has played quite well this season for TFC-A in League1. 

 

Physical comparison to Atiba is actually pretty accurate.  Similar body for sure.

Debuted for Wilmington yesterday against Orange County. Things got heated up according to the USL website:

 

USL PRO News Release

Sunday, August 24, 2014

TAMPA, Fla. -- The USL PRO Disciplinary Committee is in the process of gathering all of reports, statements, video, and other information regarding the altercation that took place in the late stages of last night's Orange County Blues FC vs. Wilmington Hammerheads FC game. Although the investigation will continue into the upcoming week, Eli Garner and Alex Martinez of Orange County Blues FC and Andrae Campbell of Wilmington Hammerheads FC will serve at least the mandatory minimum one-game suspension effective for the next league game. 

Further, the Committee has determined that Hammerheads player/assistant coach Matt Glaeser will be suspended for at least today's game at the LA Galaxy II. Any and all further disciplinary actions deemed necessary by the Committee will be determined at the conclusion of a thorough review process.

And a nice assist against LA2, making it 2-2. He's playing well on the left wing. Aparicio also on the pitch right now.

 

Edit:

 

And a goal by Kaye! 3-2 Wilmington

He's been great at lower levels so far and he's 20 already. We don't have league translation stats a la baseball yet but what else can he do to get a shot? I would much rather him (and Manella) get time next year than a Bekker or Hall.

Named MVP of the IPCC final while playing as a deep-lying midfielder (as opposed to a winger as he did in USL). Toronto have to get him under contract in some form.

 

Would take away his CIS eligibility, no?  Not that it would be a disaster

Rumours on Twitter that he is headed to Louisville City. TFC2's chaotic year really hurt him this summer, I thought he was better than Jordan Hamilton down in Wilmington the season previous.

Please let me know if he does :-)

When assessing his year, does it matter that he played mostly on the back line?
