"Ruben is an interesting situation," Petke said in a conference call earlier this week. "The goal that he took was phenomenal. We know that he has the ability to strike a ball, the ability with the ball at his feet.
"The one thing I can say that he has improved on from last year is understanding his position, wherever we put him. A lot of times last year, we could put him anywhere, outside wide and he would wind up every single place on the field instead of having that structure, having that organization. He was on the ball constantly, which some people can say its a good thing that you want the ball, but in a structured formation he would have to play his role and he had a lot of problems with that last year."
