Frieder is from Lauter, Germany. He was introduced to basketball at a young age by his eldest sister's American fiance, lover of all things sports. Drawn in by his excitement, Frieder decided to get in on the action. While his grade school experience was mostly limited to after school clubs and sports camps in early childhood, he eventually made varsity in his later school years, sticking with it through college. Frieder attended Alfred-Katzener-Universität Leipzig and was the star of their team, the Uni-Großkatzen, where he played center position. Despite appearances, Frieder is light on his feet, and uses his girth to his advantage when defending. While free throws are not his strength, his natural high-jumping abilities as a cat allows Frieder to do well when it comes to scoring from rebounds and blocking shots.
Interested in life in the United States and wishing to be closer to his sister and her family (also residing in the US), Frieder decided that while he'd definitely miss his mother's Schnitzel, a professional basketball career in the FBA might be slightly tastier.
