– Newsday caught up by phone with George South, who trained Reid Fleihr for the last couple of years. South says there were no signs of trouble. Here are some quotes from the interview:
“I know people will write what they want to write, but he was really great kid,” South said about Fliehr in a phone interview with Newsday late Saturday night. “When you’re training them them you get close. When there’s nobody in the building but them and the ring, you get to know these kids.”
“He [Fliehr] was as healthy as can be,” South said of the training session, later adding, “I know these guys inside-out. I like to think I’m like a dad to them. Reid would have said something to me [if something was wrong].”
