I had a chance to see Austin Fiedler wrestle at our sectional tourney Saturday. He has good size. I did not stand next to him, but he's easily over 6'3", probably at least 6'4" or 5". He wrestled at heavyweight, so he's under 285, looks to be in the 270 range. Decent frame and length. Doesn't have the broadest shoulders, but not narrow either. For a tackle that isn't as critical. One thing that stood out as a negative for me is that his natural standing position shows that he is somewhat knock-kneed and his legs aren't......beefy, for lack of a better term. His strength appears above average, as both matches I saw him in he completely overpowered both opponents with upper body strength, but for his size he should be able to do so at a single/double A tourney. One area that stood out as a strength in my limited look is that he seemed flexible and able to bend and seems to have a good understanding of leverage and balance in relationship to body movement, which can actually in my opinion be more difficult when your opponent is several inches shorter as was the case in both of his matches I saw. That said, I have never seen him play football, but thought some may be interested in this info.
