I'd seen Altherr's name on prospect lists, and it caught my eye because "Alt Herr" is German for "Old Gentleman"... But I didn't realize he was actually born there. I did some searching and found out that his mother is an American who was stationed in Germany, his father was a former professional German soccer (aka Fussball) player. Cool beans!

You know, when I typed in that he was born in Germany, I meant to dig a little deeper into that. And now I don't have to!

This also made me think of Steve Jeltz, who I believe was born in Paris.
