This speech has plenty of strengths:
+Scotty begins by introducing himself as The Best Man. He also jokes about the amount of time that he knew his twin brother, Danny.
+Scotty recognizes the bride's parents as well as his mother. Plus, he thanks the guests for attending the wedding.
+Well organized- Three main points: Leli's positive qualities, Scotty and Danny's relationship, and Danny's positive qualities.
+At the 5:00 mark, Scotty concludes his speech with a brief toast.
+Terrific Eye Contact- Scotty never needs to read any notes. He makes constant eye contact with the audience.
