The transfer from Orange Lutheran might have displayed the strongest arm of any passer at the 16-team tournament at Dana Hills. The junior-to-be threw the deep ball well, showed touch and accuracy. Sure, it helped having Max Redfield play wide receiver but the junior-to-be made a ton of excellent throws to help Mission Viejo reach the semifinals.
“He’s our starter,” Mission Viejo coach Bob Johnson said of Fieber after the Diablos’ victory against Chaminade.
“He’s got a big arm. … Just like everybody else, he’s certainly made his share of mistakes. That’s what this is all about: it’s summer. I’d say he’s having a good day. I won’t call it a great day.”
Fieber made one of his best throws against Chaminade. He unleashed a long pass down field that wide receiver Frank Schnicker ran down in stride for a touchdown. Later in the game, Fieber again went deep and connected with Redfield for a touchdown.
In the semifinals against Mater Dei, Fieber opened with a long connection to Redfield that appeared to be a touchdown but the ball was later placed at the 1.
Fieber enrolled at Mission Viejo in January. He was mostly a lower-play quarterback at Orange Lutheran last season.
