Dietrich, a five-year starter at guard and center for Wilfrid Laurier University in Canada, has signed a contract with the Chicago Slaughter of the Indoor Football League.
A starter of 47 games at the college level, Dietrich quickly impressed in the NAFL and CFL.
A team MVP, Captain and All-American for the London Silverbacks of the NAFL, Dietrich did well in an open tryout and was quickly signed by the BC Lions of the CFL for the 2010 season. He has done well enough in one season on the practice squad with the Lions to see a call up to the IFL and the Slaughter.
A long snapper, center and guard; Dietrich brings immediate value to the Chicago offensive line. In the IFL flexibility on the line is paramount, and finding a player with the ability to snap or play guard is a great steal for the Slaughter.
Dietrich will be represented in the USA by Simms & Shaw Sports Management Group.
