The fastest in the MLS combine he turned in a time of 3.84 seconds over 30 meters. HC Carl Robinson had nothing but praise for the young quick backline player displaying his upside in preseason camp. Thought to have a terrific disposition, desire to acquire more knowledge and put the time in it is great to have him offically vie for a position. Fiddes started 2 of his 3 games in presason linking up with the 'Caps in HI & CA.
