Seth is known as a very physical and strong player that defends with great confidence and speed. His athleticism has proven to be an advantage when marking some of the best goal scorers. Standing at 6' 2'' (1.88m), his height makes him a dominant force in the air when defending corner kicks and winning headers during the flow of play. His physical presence and quickness defends well against strong and pacey strikers. His unparalleled talent in the air makes him an offensive threat on corners kicks. When playing a defensive wing position, his speed makes him an offensive threat for crosses. His superior feel for the game to establish rhythm, ball-distribution skills and composure make him a key impact player.
